We are upgrading the record for Rose, Gerhard, ‡d 1896-1992 (LCCN no2002101636) to RDA.  We want to include a 370 for his place of birth which was Danzig (Germany).  The record for Danzig (Germany) has a 667 which states SUBJECT USAGE: This heading is not valid for use as a subject. Works about this place are entered under Gdanėsk (Poland).  What do we use in the 370, Danzig (Germany) or Gdansk (Poland)?  Is place of birth treated like a subject?

Thanks,

Barbara
