Mrs. Fotrova in the Struznice Inn around 1990. To the left of the entrance door there was a storage place for bottled beer and soft drinks; straight ahead there was the restroom and to the right there was the bar. When someone entered the bar, opposite the door there were tables with chairs and on the left side there was a brown stove. Next to the stove there were no chairs, only benches. The price for the 2 kinds of beer were 1,70 KCS and 2,10 KCS. Cigarettes were 4 KCS, 8 KCS, and 1,20 KCS. Salted sticks were 1,70 KCS. The yellow lemonade was 70 KCS and the red one was 1.10 KCS.

On this picture from about 1952 you can see the dairy which was used to buy milk from the local farmers. After the dairy closed, the house was used for weighing grain. On the left behind the house there is a railway line and a field. On the right there is a linden lined avenue.

A treasure which was waiting for us under the attic planks of one Struznice house.
Kreis Boehmisch Leipa
This is the name and address of the former Straussnitz Raiffeisenkasse (Credit Union).
Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen founded in 1864 the first rural cooperative credit union to help out the many farmers who were often at the mercy of loansharks.


And another interesting discovery from the same house. The history of the house is slowly uncovering and I think it would be worth researching.


This postcard was sent on 15 July 1901 from Neustadtl to Berlin.

This is a picture from Struznice, but I don’t know where exactly.

  • Thank you for this post. My Grandfather William Puhl was born Strutznice house 86 in 1898 before leaving for USA.
    I visited the town last year. I asked in the pub if they knew anyone named Puhl. None of them did.
    It was nice to see the name Puhl in this article, unfortunately they were fallen soldiers.
    My nephew will visit next year. hopefully he will be more successful in finding someone named Puhl in the town.

    • Puhl family was a part of the German settlement, which was displaced from Struznice after the end of WW2 and replaced with Czech people. In this day no one from the Puhl family lives in Struznice. I have friends in Germany who have lived in Struznice before WW2 and are relatives with the Puhl family. If you are interested, I can send you their contact information. If your nephew is planning to visit Struznice, send me a message and I will show him around the village. Can we communicate together in German? It would be easier for me.
