I would be very grateful for a transcription of the 3 place names in this document and suggestions about where they are located geographically. I assume they are in the area that was Czechoslovakia before WW2. The document is an extract from a "British Committee for Refugees from Czechoslovakia" interview form completed in May 1939. It concerns a non-Jewish relative by marriage who was born in March 1900, son of a coal miner. He fled Czechoslovakia as a political refugee from the Nazis. THIS IS NOW PART SOLVED. Please see 2nd comment below for the remaining puzzle.

3/26/2017 7:05 PM All three place names are very clearly written, appear unambiguous and do correspond to real towns in the general region in question.
1. Hamborn (district of Duisburg) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamborn]
2. Ulbersdorf [https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulbersdorf_(Hohnstein)]
3.Aussig: this one is now Ústí nad Labem and indeed in the Czech Republic [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ústí_nad_Labem]
4/10/2019 2:53 AM Thank you to the previous contributor. I now realise there are four places on this document - Hamborn (Duisburg Germany), Ulbersdorf Komotau (Horní Jiřetín in Czech Republic), Aussig Marschen 29 (House 29 in Maršov, Krupka Czech Republic) and a fourth address which is the second line under "Address in Czechoslovakia". I expect this address is in the same format as Aussig Marschen 29 i.e. Regional town - village or district - house number. The town looks like Kladno. I would appreciate any ideas on the village or district name.
