Dear Sister Curtis,
Sister Gerber sent an email requesting interviews for all three of you. I let her know that the Bishop has 3:00 - 4:30 available for the three of you. Since then, I have not heard back from her as to who would get which slot.
Do you have a preference?

Hopefully someone on this list who speaks both German and Polish can
help further, and even offer solution. I speak neither language, but I
am aware that many German names became Polish names that had the same
meaning, and perhaps that is the case here. For instance, Schwarz
became Czarnecki, both meaning black.
