We believe M Kujawski was our father.  What is the best way to fill in information about his life.  He did two videos, one for USC and the other for Yale

The best way would be to click on the student and then use the sources the musuem provieds and search through the records for M. Kujawski. It seems that M. Kujawski attended school #2 and so he would have been born between the years 1926 through 1933. I hope I helped lead you in the right direction. :) You could also contact the museum direct and let them know. :)

Emma steered you in the right direction. You can click on M. Kujawski in the "student list" and research in the databases to see if the information we have lines up with what you know about your father, and you can use the "add comment" button to tell us more about your father's life. You may also contact us directly: lodzresearch AT ushmm DOT org. I'm looking forward to hearing more about your father--thanks for getting in touch with us!

What is/was your father's name?  My research suggests that the boy who signed the album "M. Kujawaski" was probably Mojzesz Aron or Moszek Aron Kujawski. This boy was almost certainly deported to Chelmno and killed in September 1942.  In the USC Shoah Foundation interviews, I see testimonies from Willy and Benjamin Kujawski (both from Lodz) and another Kujawski from Lublin.  Is one of them your father?  I ask because I see that there were several other boys with the last name of Kujawski who signed the schools album, too, and one of them might have been your father.
