Where is Krechenev ? #hungary

Fellow SIGers,

I'm looking for a Krechenev. This town should be somewhere in the =
greater Hungary borders.
I know that there is a Rebbe in Bnei-Brak, Israel that came >from this =
town (he's quite famous).
A search in the 1913 gazeteer yields nothing.

Any help will be appreciated

Moderator VK: I think that you're probably looking for Karacsonfalva, now Craciunesti, Romania. I believe that Yiddish name of this place near Sighet was Kretsnif or Krechenev.
