What is the street name(circled in red) in Kanth, a small town about 15 km south west of pre-WW2 Breslau ? How do I find its Polish name as the town is now Katy Wroclawskie near Wroclaw.
Apart from my STEIN family, and Dr Heidenfeld and his family, does anyone know of the other 2 Jewish families there? One was called Jungmann, and the other may have owned a shoe shop.

4/17/2019 9:30 PM As written, it seems to read Nerrichstrasse, which to me does not sound very much like a real street name. I have no specific knowledge or information about the town or street in question.
4/18/2019 12:09 PM suggest it shell be Ulrichstrasse;

4/18/2019 2:25 PM Here is a street directory of Kanth from 1942 (on page 131): https://sbc.org.pl/dlibra/publication/343410/edition/324447/content?ref=desc
only 24 streets and no Nerrich- and no Ulrich- among them. Kirchstr. maybe?
