These four were born in Poland:

Jakob Birnbaum (1st Class - died)
Rosa Pinsky (2nd Class - survived)
Leah Aks and her baby Frank ('Filly') (3rd Class - survived)

Father Juozas Montvila (2nd Class - died) was born in Lithuania near Marijampole - now Poland?

Wasn't Berk Picard (Trembinsky) Polish too? I noticed in his bio in ET that he was born in Warsaw.

I believe Pickard was a Pole of the Jewish variety. Senator Smith contacted him through the Hebrew Immigration Society. See The Titanic: The End of a Dream, page 277.

Nobody on the Titanic was called Ropiaki (or Ludwig), and the immigration records in New York have no Ropiaki arriving on any other ship either. Are you sure you have the spelling right?
