I believe that the German name was Ziechanau and in Yiddish it
pronounced Tshe'cha-nov'e. I don't know the Russian equivalent.
I can't find a trace of any town with name "Kosnevo." But if
a chance of misspelling - or misreading - of the handwritten document,
try Kosewo (WSW of Bialystok, not far >from Ciechanow!) or maybe Kosewo
(NNW of Warsaw, not far >from Ciechanow). The first is tiny; the second,
larger, but very small. Both are also (mis)spelled Kossewo. As you
the Polish W = our V sound. So, given the locations, and the fact that
spelling wasn't fixed, I'd look in that direction.
We are still planning to visit Ciechanow in October as part of
anniversary commemoration of the Sonderkommando Revolt in Auschwitz.
As you know, my cousin Rosa Robota and others >from Ciechanow played
an important role in that historic event. We welcome all who wish to
participate with our group. I'll have cost figures and travel dates
shortly; we're currently lining up dignitaries.

Ciechanow. Can anyone provide these names?town in a
