Thank you for contacting us.

I am not finding any references in either the Museum nor the Library collection to Cistercian Monastery (Kloster zu Gross Rauden) Rudy or Gross Rauden /Ruda Majoris. I do not find any museum objects that have Upper Silesia in their records.

If you would like to browse the Museum's collection and choose your own search words, you may do so here: can also search for items in the library collection from the catalog linked at this page:

From this page, you can also search for books in a specific language. When I searched for Czech books, it showed that we have 529. I am attaching an image that will show you how to limit the search results to a specific language and material type. After you set the limits, you can choose your keywords in that language and do your search. Please let me know if you need any additional assistance with this. 

I am also attaching bibliographies for you to look at. If you see items that you are interested in, please see the note below for how to obtain items through Interlibrary Loan. Check with your local library to see if they are an OCLC participating member. If you have questions for us about that process, you can email

When I search for Zawada, there are two possibly relevant Library results:

1. Glass beads:

2. The early mediæval hoard : from Zawada Lanckorońska (Upper Vistula River) / Helena Zoll-Adamikowa, Maria Dekówna and Elżbieta Maria Nosek ; English translation, Bruce MacQueen, Iwona Zych:

Unfortunately, due to copyright, neither of these are available online. Most of our Library materials need to be used here in the library, although we do participate in Interlibrary Loan and are glad to send copies of articles or second copies we own of books to your local library. 

Please let me know if you need any additional help or information.
