Where is Arszana in pre-WW II Poland? #poland


Vernon Kronenberg
 

I have a US death notice saying that Stefan Kronenberg was born in Arszana, Poland in 1915.
I can't locate Arszana on Google maps, apart from a medical clinic of that name in present day Wroclaw.
Can anybody enlighten me, please. I would have thought it was close to Warsaw.

Well, looks like this is a misinterpreted name of Poland’s capital Warszawa.

Arszana sounds like Ashana, one of the jiddisch names of Mszana Dolna in
Southern Poland, south of Kraków
