Aside from the Katz who moved to Gera and perished in the Shoah, there are about twenty Katz from Sokal who appear on lists of victims of the Shoah. At least some - if not all - are related to our family.

Victims in Sokal

From the Sokal Yizkor book, a list of shoah victims from Sokal named Katz. It's not clear who among these are our relatives, but one family related to a Herz Wolf suggests a possible relation with Leo's ancestor with the same name.
