Kitty was deported >from France to Auschwitz. On the deportation record it

likely was misspelled.
My mother recalls that there was a town nearby Sosnowiec with a similar
name that had a military base.
On Jewishgen I found a couple of possibilities, one being close to
Yiddish pronunciation:
Strzyzow, Poland, 4952'N 2148'E; 271 km SSE of Warszawa
Brucha, Kitty's mother, was originally >from Stopnice and when Brucha
married perhaps she married a man >from Strazu. Stopnice is 5026'N 2057'E;
202 km S of Warszawa

I would love to find birth indexes for the time period c.1900-1921 if
they exist for Kitty and her siblings.
Any thoughts on Strazu? and the military base location?
Dear Ann,

I am wondering if towns Sosnowiec and Stopnica are not confused.
Town Strazow is located in Rzeszow vicinity (and close to Stopnica listed
in your message) but Sosnowiec is not nearby
