According to (in German)

you could write to:
Urzad Stanu Cywilnego
ul. Korfantego 14
40-098 Katowice

They have the following:
Geburts-, Heirats- und Sterberegister: 1874 - 1945
Register of births, marriages and deaths 1874 - 1945.

However, I do not know if they would search all the records "for the period
beginning 1915 and ending 1938".

When searching the database
