The Germans bombed my father's family home near Grodek Jagiellonski. Of course Brzesc-nad-Bugiem (Brzesc Litewski) can be considered as located within Kresy, if one understands that region to include all of Eastern Poland occupied by the Soviets and the Lithuanians.

The German troops were in Stryj on 18 Sept 39, also in and around Lwow (e.g. Grodek Jagiellonski, Zboiska). The Soviet gen. Vladimir Ivanov took Lvov over from oberstleutnant Max-Josef Pemsel (from gen. Kuebler's division).
Also Brest-Litovsk was briefly occupied by the Germans (I don't want to argue whether Brest-Litovsk is, or isn't, in Kresy)
