Grudza [ˈɡrud͡za] (German: Birngrütz) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Mirsk, within Lwówek Śląski County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland, close to the Czech border.[1] It lies approximately 10 kilometres (6 mi) east of Mirsk, 20 kilometres (12 mi) south of Lwówek Śląski, and 110 kilometres (68 mi) west of the regional capital Wrocław.

Prior to 1945 it was in Germany. After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration and ethnically cleansed according to the post-war Potsdam Agreement. The native German populace was expelled and replaced with Poles.
