My aunt, Helen Bulak, boarded the M.S. Batory on September 21, 1937, sailing from Gdynia Poland to New York.  Her traveling companions, Katherine [Kazimiera] Gralicka [Gralicki] and Katherine's two daughters Alice [Alicia] and Danuta [Diana], and Katherine's sister, Boleslawa Pomianowska [Pomianowski] were also on board and heading back to the States.

The M.S. Batory was another ship on the Gdynia-America Line and the sister ship of the M.S. Pilsudski. The Batory launched in July 1935 and remained in service until June 1971.  Eustazy Borkowski was the ship's captain at the time my aunt's voyage. You can read more about the M.S. Batory and Captain Borkowski here and here.

I have the complete passenger list for the September 21-30, 1937 sailing of the Batory which I hope to post in full at another time.
