Hello John,
Urbach was one of the Nazi renamings in Poland during WWII. It is listed 
as a forced labor camp for male Jews from May, 1941 to August, 1942 in 
the "Reichsgau Wartheland", Lodz province. Maybe it was later used for 
the co-location of Volhynian remigrants.

The Polish name is Turów, a village of presently 600 inhabitants, 4 km 
wsw of the town center of Wieluń (renamed to Welungen in 1941).
