Herby is indeed located near Czestochowa, about 8 miles from
Czestochowa on the road to Lubliniec.
This town was known as an historical border between The Kingdom of
Poland and Silesia, and following Congress of Vienna it became a
border town between Russia and Prussia (>from 1815 to 1915).
For this reason town was divided into two parts: Ruskie (Russian)
Herby (later renamed to Polish Herby), and Herby Pruskie (Preussisch
Herby), which was later renamed to Herby Slaskie (Silesian Herby).
Herby Pruskie (Prussian Herby) is the town that is described in the
article as "German Herby".
