I am putting together a family tree on my mother's side. I am unable to locate some of the children of Gitla Talman Ofman and Chaim Ofman, my grandfather's aunt and uncle. These two people were married in 1890, in Radomsko, Poland (then called Novoradomsk or Noworadomsk). (Gitla was from nearby Plawno.) They had many children, born between about 1891 and 1910. Of these children, parts of three families did survive the Holocaust. The rest, we fear and assume, were taken from Radomsko and killed at Treblinka

Let me know of you come across any of these names:
