Uraz [ˈuras] (German: Auras) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Oborniki Śląskie, within Trzebnica County, Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland.[1] It lies approximately 7 kilometres (4 mi) south-west of Oborniki Śląskie, 16 kilometres (10 mi) south-west of Trzebnica, and 19 kilometres (12 mi) north-west of the regional capital Wrocław.

Prior to 1945 it was in Germany. After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration by the Potsdam Agreement under territorial changes demanded by the Soviet Union. Most Germans fled or were expelled and were replaced with Poles expelled from the Polish areas annexed by the Soviet Union.
