Kaposmero was in Somogy county. There is a list of places in Somogy at http://www.bogardi.com/gen/g146.shtml
that includes Kaposmero in the Kaposvari
district but I donâ??t see anything on the list that looks like Kasniercy or
Kasnierey. I also searched the 1913 Gazetteer for place names starting with the
prefix â??Kasâ?? and didnâ??t see antying that might be a match.
Nyir means birch in Hungarian and there are quite a few places in Szabolcs county that include Nyir as a prefix but none appear to include â??nyirâ?? otherwise.
This all leads me to conclude that the place listed in the source is either incorrect or itâ??s not in Hungary.

I have been under the impression he was born in Kaposmero, but perhaps I am
An "Additional List of Buchenwald Survivors" notes his last known place as
Kasnierey, which I am also unable to identify. The only Google hits I get for this
spelling are other references to this record. Can anyone suggest the correct name
of a town in Hungary to which this might refer?
Thanks very much in advance,
