Thanks for all your help!

This is new to me, I just received the marriage certificate from the NYC Archives this week which gave me Aranka Drachsler's parents (and then I found her family!).

I did find one brother's Naturalization data online:

The other brother's were naturalized, but their records are not online. I'm afraid their records will contain the same information, Bella, Czechoslovakia, but I will send for them anyway.

I just noticed that this article gives one more clue:" the town of Rosenberg, 30 miles away."
"Julius Drachsler was born on September 5, 1889, in Bella, Czechoslovakia, a little town in the foothills south of the Carpathian Mountains. When he was six years of age his
parents moved to the neighboring town of Szucsany. He received his elementary education at a gymnasium in the town of Rosenberg, 30 miles away. He boarded in this community while attending the school, which was conducted by a group of Dominican monks. In after-school hours he received instruction in a Hebrew school nearby."

But with the names of the towns changing over the years, I'm pretty lost.
