[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Stakein refugee centre

Upon further looking, I've found a village in far northeastern Slovakia 
called, on a travel website, Stakein, but correctly called Stakcin. I have 
no idea if there was ever a refugee center there, but the location surely 
makes this seem possible, just a few miles across the border from Ukraine 
or, at that time, Russia.  Records of the Austro-Hungarian government, or 
maybe the Red Cross, might be of help in finding out if there was actually a 
refugee center there.  Does anyone else have any suggestions?
