Re: Looking for the street in Warsaw #general #warsaw

There is a Warsaw city map from 1938 that claims to have all the streets listed. https://polona.pl/item/plan-wielkiej-warszawy-z-wymienieniem-wszystkich-ulic-miasta,MzU2NDQ1NA/0/#info:metadata
On its reverse side the street names are given.

I strongly suspect that it is Ulica Gęsia. Since the name of the street was pronounced differently than it was written, spelling errors are of course bound to occur. The street was in a Jewish neighborhood - in Muranow. The street does not exist today under its old name. Partly it forms today the Ulica Mordechaja Anielewicza . There is also the new POLIN Museum (Museum of the History of Polish Jews).
