QUERY: Polish Labor camp

I am working on a story of a Polish Survivor and part of her story is confusing and I hope someone might be able to help.
She was from the town of Horodlo and was sent to work at a nearby estate that had been owned by a wealthy Polish prince before the Nazis took it over. She said it was in Stazyn but I can't find any such place. The closest thing is Strzyżów.
She said she was harvesting sugar beets and later wheat.
Anyone have any idea what estate she's talking about or any other details?
