Abstracts

The article presents the activities of Alois Schwarz, a chemistry and natural history professor at the Landes- Oberrealschule (a type of regional high school) in Moravian Ostrava, author of numerous works and the organizer of international brewing congresses. He belonged to the social and political urban elite and he was a member of the city council for three terms. He also played an active role in local associations. In 1902, he founded a high school for girls, the Female High School (Mädchen- Lyzeum), which he managed for 20 years, promoting the model of modern education in the German language. He advocated the idea that Jews should adopt the German language and culture, which was believed to be universal, according to the general notion of humanism.
