I could not find an exact match for Pojawia anywhere.

On the assumption that it might be near Sudawsky, I used ShtetlSeeker to 
search all places within a 30 mile radius beginning with the letter 
P.  Believe it or not, there are 190 such villages scattered throughout 
Poland, Lithuania, and Russia.

The closest match I could find was 12 miles NNW of Sudawsky, a village that 
has the following variant spellings:

Pajavonio / Pajavonys / Pajevonio / Pajevonys / Payevonis / Pajevon'

On an East Prussia map (though it would have been just east of the border) 
you can see it as Pajevonis.

You can browse through this list of 190 places yourself by using the 
"Distance" option on:
