Town in Galicia that you are referring to is written in the passenger list
as "Oleszica", the third letter is definitely 's'.
This is an alternative name (other known town names are Olishiche and
Holashitz) of town Oleszyce, located in Poland, just NW >from town Lubaczow,

from the shtetl prewar population of just over 3,000, more than half wereJewish. Just next to Oleszyce another village known as Oleszyce Stare or
Stare Oleszyce (Old Oleszyce) is located.
This village of prewar 2,500 people had also 105 Jewish souls. Prior to WWII
town was located in Lwow Province, but physically it is located in western
