Hi Loren & Nelson.

If you are certain it is in Volhynia, then the place is probably Nevir, a 
remote German settlement area about 76 km NNE of Kowal, on the north bank 
of the Pripyat River and just 3 km from the border with Belarus.

In Ukraine I did also find Navaria but it is located about 12 km SW of Lvov 
which would be Galicia, not Volhynia.
