About Majer Cudkowicz

In 1900, Majer Cudkowicz's family had a textile factory in Lodz. He moved to Chemnitz on 18.10. 1919, where he was the owner of the company: "Meier Zudkowitz, Altwaren", on Holzweberstraße 24.

He was married three times and had ten children. His first wife, Hinda ("Chinda" in the records) died young after giving birth to Gela, Majer's first child. His second wife Rachel, mother of Moritz and Sasha (Sara), died giving birth to Sasha. His third wife, Chaya Helene, whom he married in Warsaw on 28.2.1894, was the mother of Isak (based on his wedding photo), and his other siblings.
