STA place of origin?

The ESTA form asks for place of birth, but on Swiss passports figure place of origin which can be very different from the place of birth. What does one fill in to satisfy the US? Place of birth, or as listed on the passport place of origin? Thanks!

Really ?? If a form asks you to write down your place of birth what does that suggest you should do??
