Hi, My name is Neil Oratz, my father was Samuel (Schlomo) Oratz in the USA but the name was spelled Oracz before Ellis Island. I believe Leah or Lilly was my grandmother, a beautiful woman. I have her picture on an immigration document from the 1920's, and if you email me at I could send it to you. Anyway my grandfather who came over first was Nathan. He then sent for my grandmother and three children, and two more were born more in the USA. Grandpa Nathans father was Mendel Oracz. He was shot along with his wife Cina by German Police in the spring of 1942 in their hometown of Wochock Poland in the Kielce district, probably because they were very old, and couldn't make the trip on the train. The other two families were sent off to Treblinka and I believe out of ten relatives, one survived the camps.
