Izak Zudkowitz and his family
Before WWII, Isak (born in Lodz 13.1.1896 to Meir Cudkowicz and his third wife Chaya Helene nee Morowitz) and his wife Rebecka nee Schwadron (born 15.4.1899) had lived in Leipzig, Germany, where they had been married in 1923. They had two children: one son, Hans (born in Chemnitz 12.6.1925) and one daughter, Sonia-Ruth /aka Sonia-Ruchle), born 6.12.1927. After being expelled to Poland (October28, 1938) they moved back to Lodz, and from there to the Lodz Ghetto.

Hans died of tuberculosis at the Ghetto Lodz Hospital on February 17, 1942.
Rebecka and Sonia-Ruth perished in a KZ (Dachau or Auschwitz) in 1943 (not Chelmno, as the last transport to this camp was in September 1942).
