Note: As per Dan Jordan at th USHMM (via email on July 15, 2013), "It appears as though they died before the relocation to Miedzyrzecz. People who were displaced to Miedzyrzecz have "Wysiedleni do Miedzyrzecz" (displaced to Miedzyrzecz) written in the "Next Place of residence" field. Additionally, the displacement occurred in 1942 so the "Date of Leaving" might actually be date of death."
