Abstract Friedrich Ludwig Jahn’s monuments in Silesia Friedrich Ludwig Jahn (1778–1852) was a German gymnastics educator commonly known as Turnvater Jahn. In the 19th and 20th centuries there were erected over 300 monuments in honour of him, mostly in Germany, Austria and what was later Czechoslovakia. They usually looked the same: a stone with a commemorative plaque showing Jahn’s bust. The article describes the monuments to Jahn in Silesia. The sources of information about them were mainly old newspapers. In Silesia at least 15 monuments were erected: in Biała (Zülz), Bolesławiec (Bunzlau), Bolków (Bolkenhain), Chojnów (Haynau), Gliwice (Gleiwitz), Jawor (Jauer), Kamienna Góra (Landeshut), Kłodzko (Glatz), Nowa Sól (Neusalz), Prusice (Prausnitz), Strzelin (Strehlen), Syców (Groß Wartenberg), Środa Śląska (Neumarkt), Trzebnica (Trebnitz), Złotoryja (Goldberg). Nearly all of them date back to prior to World War I. Only one was built after this conflict. Most of the monuments were situated in Lower Silesia. Only two were erected in Upper Silesia.
