ADELA AND YOSEL PIASKOGORSKI
Lodz, Poland
cir 1938-9

 

The above photo is from their wedding cir 1938-9. Adela (nee Jurkowska) and Yosel (Josef) Piaskogorski changed their names to Adele and Joseph Gorsky sometime after their immigration.
Yosel worked as a tailor in Lodz and Adela worked in a clothing store. During the war, both of them, now married, were forced to live in the ghetto. When the ghetto was being liquidated in 1944, both Adela and Yosel were sent to Auschwitz. Before the end of the war, Adela was sent to Bergen-Belsen and Yosel to Dachau. At war's end, Yosel was liberated by the American Army and Adela by the British. He found her after liberation by searching the lists of survivors posted at Dachau. He subsequently went to her at Bergen Belsen where they resided for a time. Later, they moved to the DP camp at Frankort-Hoechst, and after that they immigrated to New York, where his Yosel's brother was living.
