Still working on the memory book concerning the Convoy#73 that took 878
men >from France to the Baltic States on 15 May 1944, I found a Benjamin
SOLNIK who is said born in "Anschnirtz" in 1900. I couldn't find any
"Anschnirtz" anywhere. On the other hand, I thought that Auschwitz was
Oswiecim before WWII ?
Yes, indeed, town was known as Oswiecim, but only after the year 1918.
Prior to the end of WWI, it was known as Austrian Auschwitz.
