Survivor's Register Book
The “Survivor's Register Book” was published by the Jewish Agency for Palestine
in Jerusalem in 1945. This list represents only people registered
in the first month or so just after liberation.


The Beginning

Piotrkow was liberated on January 16, 1945 by the Soviet Army. People who survived in Auschwitz, Czestochowa, on the Aryan side, etc., came back home. They registered in the Gmina. Most of them left Piotrkow shortly afterward. On the next page is the list of these people taken from the “Survivor's Register Book.”

(Our thanks to Rafi Weiser and Rivka Staszewska-Plesser of the Jerusalem University Library for this important historical material.)

The Committee
The Committee – Dr. Zygmunt Tenenbaum, President and Ewa
Borzykowska, Secretary. The others are: attorney Esterka Flattau and Szer.

A letter from the Jewish Committee in Piotrkow to the Relief Association in New York – 1947
(translation follows)


Dear Brothers:

I just like to let you know that we've received the medical instruments and we thank you very much.

We've also received the clothing parcels that you previously mentioned. I wrote to Mr. Wolreich a “thank you” letter – apparently the letter got lost in the mail.

A detailed report regarding the apportionment of the clothing will be sent to you next week; we are just finishing the distribution.

We thank you again for your abundant help that you so generously and steadily bestow upon us. We extend our heartfelt regards to all our landsmen.

Dr. Zygmunt Tenenbaum

Corresponding secretary, Ewa Borzykowska
AL. 3-GO Maja 23
