Thomaskirch = Domaniów a village in Oława County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland. It is the seat of the administrative district (gmina) called Gmina Domaniów. Prior to 1945 it was in Germany. It lies approximately 13 kilometres west of Oława, and 27 kilometres south of the regional capital Wrocław. (wikipedia)

50°53′38″N 17°07′44″E


NB: The date mentioned in the citation is wrong (April 6), Thomaskirch was taken on February 6, 1945
