Can anyone identify this car?

I found this photo of my mother and her friends posing with this car in Warsaw Poland sometime in the 1930s - probably sometime after 1935. Can anyone suggest an identification of this car?

    Fraulein Einhorn is blocking the view of the radiator, the best clue. Are you sure it was in Warsaw, and not in Germany? They all have German names.

    Yes, it's a shame that the front of the car is blocked. This was definitely in Poland. Many of the girls were Jewish, and had Germanic-Jewish names, (my own mother's maiden name was Friedland). But these were my mother's school friends in Warsaw. I would imagine that many of the cars in Poland were manufactured elsewhere?

    I bet you're right, lots of different sources for cars. Too bad the hub cap doesn't show a name.

    I forgot about how scrambled the Polish/German borders were over the last 200 years.

    I have a strong suspicion the car is an early 30s Fiat.

    Thanks. I bet there aren't many of those still around!

    Yes , it might not survived the war. Warsaw was almost completely destroyed along with everything else. And the Germans required everyone to gets special permission to travel anywhere, so with that and petrol rationing, I imagine that this car, if not destroyed, just rusted away in a garage or barn.
