I am trying to find out about a distant relative Kazimierz Polewko who was in Wejmar-Buchenwald, prisoner number: 42465, Block 17

I also had family members Jan Polewko in Stutthof concentration camp his prisoner numbers was 33414 and Stanislaw Polewko in Stutthof as well.

His prisoner number was 19948.

I really want to learn what happened to Kazimierz Polewko after the war and who his parents were. I kinda think he did not survive.

He is mentioned in family letters in my possession from 1947.

I think his mother was Marjanna but I am not sure.

My sister and I are researching our Polish Ancestry and we want to lear everything we can about the Polewko family.

Our Grandfather Joseph was born in Thomas West Virginia when his father Jan was working we think in the mines on a work visa.

My Grandfathers other two brothers Jan and Antoni were also born in Thomas West Virginia.

They all moved back to Poland at some time which we do not know either. 

From the family letters we think they were from Jurasze Poland.

  • Sylvia, this is very sad news to learn about Kazimierz. Thank you so much for finding these documents so we can close this chapter on one of our Polish relatives. 

    We are still trying to make contact with any living Polewko's in Poland and its is proving very difficult.

    Do you have any tips you can pass along that can help us achieve this end?

    Sincerely, 

    Paul Polewko
