Can you help me identify this town? Nowe Skrezepiec, Poland #poland


Todd Cohn
 

This is the name of the town/city that was listed on an AJDC emigration index card.
I looked on JewishGen KehillaLinks and JRI Poland but didn't find anything. 
The daughter of the person who's birthplace I'm trying to find said she pronounced it "Nova Shapeecha"
Any help you can offer is much appreciated!

This appears to be to be town Krzepice near Czestochowa. Nowe Krzepice, a Jewish town, have been integrated within Krzrepice.
