I have noticed that  following name changes occurred during the 2nd World
War occupation of Central Poland.
Grodziec was renamed as Grossdorf . As well Babiak was renamed as Waldau,
Brzeziny as Loewenstadt, Dombie-Eichstaedt, Sompolno-Deutscheneck,
Grodno-Garten, Huta Bardzinska-Bardoer Huette, Zagorow- Hinterberg, Izbica
Kujawska- Muehlenthal, Kolo- Warthbruecken, Kutno- Kutten, Wloclawek-
Leslau, Lodz- Litzmannstadt, Brzeziny- Loewenstadt,  Makowisko-
Wolschebuden, Przedecz-Moosburg, Sobieseki- Muehlenrode, Nieszawa- Nessau,
Nowosolna- Neusulzfeld, Orlowo- Adlersheim, "Ruda Pabianicka" as
"Litzmannstadt-Erzhausen", Stawiszyn- Stavenhagen, Tomaszow Maz.-Thomashof,
