Please help me... I have been researching my polish family tree... I know my gramp left his mother and younger sister in Poland while he worked at a labour camp in Russia. Please can someone tell me if there is any death books for the victims of ww2...? My grandfather belonged to Orthodox church in Boncza and i'm finding loads of victims names who were jews but just want to know if there is any records of my Great grandmother-Zofia Pilipczuk. How can i find out if she was sent to a concentration camp??? is there aywhere i can write to or any websites!!! thanks alot,Tessa :)

Which Bończa do you mean? Bończa Krasnostawski, Lubelskie, or Bończa Lubasz, Czarnkowsko-Trzcianecki, Wielkopolskie.
If she was living in Bończa Krasnostawski, Lubelskie and she was sent to a concentration camp then it would be almost certainly Majdanek, located in the suburbs of Lublin.

However, the problem is that most records were destroyed.
My wife's grandmother was in Majdanek and she had major problems trying to prove that she was incarcerated there, because of the small amount of documentation.

You may be able to find and transport document that is located at the local government archives.

I found this site for tracing Polish victims of Nazism. Don't know if it will help.
