I am looking for a place called Snowia in Poland pre war. Does anybody know where this place is or was located? It may have been demolished during the war. A map of its location would be very helpful. Hope somebody can help.

From looking at the name I believe you are looking for Gmina " Sosnowica " if I am correct
pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sosnowica_(województwo_lubelskie)

also this may help

google doesn't give any results for post-war Poland, maybe the place is now in Ukraine, Lithuania or Belarus.

Or it could be an attempt at translating "Śnieżka" into English lol

There is a title of a book ' Do Snowia i dalej' which translates To Snowia and further.

By Jarosław Marek Rymkiewicz

Snowiu aka Snowia was in Powiat nowogródzki Belarus, the Powiat name was changed in 1939 ( II Rzeczpospolita)

The correct translation would be: To Snów and further.

Snów - nom. case
Snowia - genitive case

Tarnów - Tarnowa
Kraków - Krakowa
Tomaszów -Tomaszowa
Snów - Snowa

the name from the title should be Snowie in the nominative but it still remains just a thought up place

Snów but w Snowie or Snowiu. You can say either way. Perhaps Belorussian pronunciation had some influence here.
Check this out about pałac w Snowiu:

In Polish the name of this village is Snów, in Belorussian Сноў (Snou). Before the WW2 Snów belong to Poland, now to Belarus
