The town is usually called Drogobych. It is south to Lvov in Ukraine and
was an important Kehilla that managed the matters of neighbouring
Borislav (where my GGF lived). You could have found it even on your
mispelling. I wrote Drohobycz in the Shtetl Seeker and voila!
Coordinates 4921 2330 appeared.

A friend in Europe advises me there is a new book on Drogobych by Henryk
Grynberg called Drogobych:

The book is a well written series of essays, one of which is titled (in
Polish version) "Drohobycz Drohobycz" and relates to the Jews of Drohobycz.
The whole book was named after this essey. Other stories do not relate
to the town but are worth reading anyway.
