In 1997 I set up www.olejarz.com
. Over the course of the last ten
years I have heard from people with the Olejarz name from as close as
New Jersey, USA, where I live, and as far as France and Poland. Olejarz
is of Polish origin.

My father, Leijb Olejarz, was a Polish Jew who survived the Holocaust
and wound up in Berlin at the end of the Second World War where he met
my mother in Berlin. My sister was born in Berlin in 1949. My father
went to the USA and my mother and sister followed a year or two later. I
was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1952. My parents’ marriage came apart and
my father disappeared. My mother said he moved to Israel and from the
time I was 7 or 8 I never heard from my father again. It was only after
my mother's death in March of 2005 that I learned that my father did
move to Israel and at one point asked that I visit him. My mother never
told me of his request. To this day I do not know where my father is or
if my father is dead or alive.

    My name is Howard Olarsch. My
father Irving sponsored 2 cousins from Poland who had survived the
holocaust. Cousin Leibel and his German wife were in my apt. in Bklyn
with your sister. I was at another site and saw a photo and recognized
them. I also remember your sister who was the blondest blond child I had
ever seen up to that time. I also remember when your father abandoned
the family and left for Israel. I was about 10--11 at the time. My wife
and I were traveling thru Eastern Europe last yr. and tried getting info
on our family  ( Olarsch =Olejarz )  during our week in Poland . Nada
!  Ihave 2 first cousins w/ the same name & we have some contact.
