RUCHLA (RENIA) DIAMENT
Lodz, Poland
cir 1930s

words from her granddaughter:

"My
grandmother, Renia/Ruchla Diament was born in Lodz in either 1921 or 1924.  She had three sisters, Rose, Chana and Sura Aidla, and she had two brothers, Aron Jankiel and Srul. Her mother was Cwyia and her father was Abram Judka Diament.  The family lived at 70 Pomorska Street in Lodz.  When the Nazi's invaded, Rose and Renia fled Lodz.  They were the oldest daughters of the family and their parents felt that they had survived one war and would therefore survive this one.  They had small children and didn't want to leave their home.  Rose and Renia fled to Warsaw and then to Bialystok where they were captured by the Russians and sent on cattle trains to Siberia.  They spent a year there until they were freed.  They then spent the rest of the war in Kazakstan and Uzbekstan.  Renia/Ruchla met my grandfather, Munish Morgenstern in Kazakstan and they were later married at the DP camp Fohrenwald, in Germany.  Abram Judka, Cwyia, Srul, Sura Aidla and Chana were forced into the ghetto where they lived at Kosykowa 16.  They were among the early transports to Chelmno where they were gassed.  They were killed on February 25, 1942.  We believe that Aron Jankiel Diament was killed 3 days before liberation in Dachau and that his wife Malka Muriam Zalcberg had survived but we don't know where she is today."
