I had written the Lodz State Archive regarding my great uncle, Hans Elbogen and his mother Jeanette Lichtenstein Elbogen for any information. This is a response I received today but I can not read it. Any help with translation would be greatly appreciated. Thomas Anders

On  Response 
6/28/2018 7:40 AM They found Hans's labour card from the Lodz ghetto
In the Lodz ghetto documents they found no information on Jeanette.

To get the document they found, send $3 by wire transfer to their account, whose information is noted in bold print in the middle of the letter. The indicated SWIFT code and IBAN should be sufficient information, and your bank workers should be able to help you set up the transfer.

Your letter dated: 18.06.2018

Our reference: OII.6344.342.2018

Date: 25th of June 2018


The National Archives in Lodz advise that the information regarding Hans Elbogen, born 18.04.1894, has been located within the archival fond “Head of the Jewish Council of Elders in Lodz Ghetto” for the years 1940-1944, namely in residence registration books, reference no. 1053, page 62, as well as in the “Name Lists of Foreign Jews Introduced into the Ghetto, Transports from Vienna”, reference no. 998, page 50, item 141. In addition to that, in the same fond, under reference no. 1011, on pages 152-153, under the letter E, has been found the labour card of Hans Elbogen. The card contains the miniature photograph of the employee, which is in a very poor state of preservation, as well as address of residence, employment department, date of death, and the date when the work was started. Also, please be advised that no information regarding Jeanette Eugenie Elbogen/ Eugenie Lichtenstein, born 16.08.1871, has been found within the above-mentioned archival fond, i.e. within residence registration books and cards, within labour cards or in the “Name Lists of Foreign Jews Introduced into the Ghetto, Transports from Vienna”.

What we can offer is we can make digital copies of the documents we have managed to find. In order to obtain them, you need to pay the amount of USD 3 into the following bank account:

PL53101013710024242231000000

The calculation of the costs of search is as follows:

1. 2 digitized copies from the microfilm x PLN 2,50 = PLN 5

3. 2 digitized copies from the digitized archival materials x PLN 3 = PLN 6

TOTAL: PLN 11

As of 20.06.2018, the National Bank of Poland average currency exchange rate for USD stands at 3,73. Therefore 11:3,73~USD3.

Please input our reference as payment reference when
making a transfer.

(signed), Deputy Head of the National Archives in Lodz
