4. Family homes – This map was hand-drawn by a member of the Mayer family from Borislaw and appears to record the Jewish families live in Mitzkavitca Str   רח מיצקיביצה near the centre of town and the names Waldman and Linhard can be seen on page 33 (3) 34 (4) 36 (6)  . One of the the Waldmans live opposite the Palace Movie House.  Family homes in Mitzkavitca street Borislaw

5. The map below was hand-drawn in 1917 with family names in one suburb of Borislaw – mainly where the Jewish Ghetto was later established by the Germans. Family names such as Wilf, Henefeld and many others can be identified although the resolution of the image is not high. The flow of the river through town can be seen and the main bridge across Panska Street – the main road of Borislaw.
