JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Help identifying Polish city on Russian-German border during WWI #general


Gary Katz <katzgary@...>
 

I recently located the following April 7, 1921 newspaper article
related to my KATZ family in the Bismarck (North Dakota) Tribune. I'd
greatly appreciate if anyone can help me identify the Polish city
that is described.

_Family Wiped Out in World War, says niece_
Joe Katz after Six Years Without Letters Receive News of Deaths

Joe Katz received word today >from a niece in Poland that three
brothers and two sisters were killed during the World war.
Mr. Katz has been trying for six years to get in communications with
some of his relatives in Poland, but today message of death was the
first once which he has received.
His niece said that she did not know whether they had been shot or
starved to death.

They lived about 150 miles west of Warsaw in a small city in which
the Russians and Germans clashed 16 times during the war.
The writer declared that the brothers and sisters had been driven out
of their homes and everything which they had had been taken. They
were all well to do.


In the mid-1800s, the family had lived in the Vilna area.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
