POLA HOROWICZ SIGIEL
Czestochowa
date unknown

--from daughter Lea Wolinetz:
"We came to New York City in February 1949. My mother wrote a letter "To any Jewish organization in the U.S."--please help me ! At that time, her cousin Tonya Bick was a doctor in Albany and had sent them papers. My mother was the only survivor of her wonderful family. And so, we came--Chaim David Zygiel from Warsaw, Pola Horowicz from Czestochowa, and six-month-old Lea Sigiel, who was born in Bad Worishofen, Germany.
We had a trunkful of diapers, ten dollars and nothing but hope for the future. We arrived in grand style on a cruise liner called the Marina Tiger to the port in New York. My father became a men's tailor, my mother a parents association president, and me a fairly normal student. We were Americans.
Today Pola and David just celebrated sixty years of marriage,
I have three grown children and am married to my husband Alan.
We all live in New York, and so far we all have lived happily after after!!"
