Married name: Millie Lappell (probably married in England)

Married name may have been Lappell (phonetically could be Loppell or Luppell).
Her husband died about 5 years after they were married
no knowledge of a possible 2nd marriage

Have you any knowledge of any of the individuals we describe here?

Have you any suggestion where else we might seek information about any of these people? We would be most grateful for your help.

Also, we wonder whether you can help us trace Professor Lewkowicz - or any of his family - who, we believe, was working at London Zoo about 40 years ago?

If you can help, please e-mail us at searchandunite [at] lewinsdlondon [dot] org [dot] uk
