I saw your many posts on this site. I have had recent success in finding info about my Dħbrowski (Dombrowski) ancestors. I keep looking for more. My mother's father came from Dobrzyniewo Duze near Bialystok before 1910. Stanley Dħbrowski was the first in his family to come to Brooklyn, NY before 1910 and his name became Dombrowski. As you probably have found Dħbrowski in Poland is about as common as Smith or Brown in the USA.
I traced our family's history back to the 1800s in Poland and found a lot relatives names but I can't tell if any of them survived WW2 so far. I got most of the info by accident from the VA while trying to track down one of Stanley's brothers, Albin Dombrowski that was killed in WW 1 while serving in the US Army.
Albin Dombrowski was drafted in 1917 while living in Fayette , Ohio.
During that search with the VA, They sent me a package on Albin Dombrowski, but it was the wrong person. He was a veteran of WW2 from Syracuse, NY. No relation to me.
I would be glad to share any info with you.

I ran across this story while searching for Jozef Dabrowski
Wladyslaw Dabrowski, son of Jozef and Katarzyna, born on 5-25-1810 in Jedwabne, county of Lomza
I am sure the '1810 ' was a typo, should have been 1910
VIII. Wladyslaw Dabrowski - the defendant pleaded not guilty during the trial, however, in the UB and in The Prosecutor's Office he admitted to guarding Jews for two hours. Witness Eljasz Gradowski talked about him, too. The defendant testified that he had refused to go and Germans hit him on the face and forced him to go. The testimonies of the witnesses: Dabrowska Maria and Jozef Kalczynski that the defendant was laying tiles on the roof of the church at the time, cannot be accepted in the light of the earlier quoted data. Because guarding Jews on the square meant harm in respect to life's safety - which the defendant was well aware of - based on how the events were developing, and how they resulted in bringing Jews to a place of execution - the defendant's act then qualifies from article 2 of the Decree. It needs to be indicated that from the initial stage of the German's conduct, which was assembling Jews - the defendant might have not been able to predict the course of the action, such as the burning and the shooting of the Jews at the cemetery. As for the penalty, considering the significant distance in time since the commitment of crime, the Court has established a sentence of 8 years in prison as satisfactory.
