I checked the _Auschwitz Death Books_.
As I suspected, the only other information listed are the record

Jo~zef Szczotka #11786/1943
Karolina Szczotka #32247/1943

Piotr Szczotka, born June 24, 1904 in Ujsoly, old woj. Bielsko-Bial~a,
died March 29, 1943. Record book: StUrk. 4(38)

I think there was someone else on this list who also contacted the
museum archives, besides Alan, with favorable results. Unfortunately, I
don't remember who it was.
