Dear researchers and enthusiasts,
I have a Rohatyn family member who went to Vienna >from 1926-29 to "deepen her study
of German language".
Her name was Bronia HORN (Bronislawa HORNOWNA), born 1904 in Rohatyn.
I have numerous records and correspondence about her >from archives at Jagiellonia
University in Krakow and the Universities of Lwow and Vienna.
I already know >from my research and these records that Bronia was sent in 1914
from Rohatyn at age 10 to a "Vienna Department School" because of the outbreak of WWI (Rohatyn was occupied).
from 1924-26, Bronia attended University of Lwow, studying German and French languageand literature.
from 1929-31, she did graduate work at Jagiellonia University, and was then an apprentice teacherof German at the Polish all-boys school called A. Witkowskiego, in Krakow.
In between, I also know that in May and June of 1926 she was living at two addresses
Lerchenfelder Strasse 46/29, Vienna
Hollergasse 5/9, Vienna
What I don't know is where she was living in Vienna between June 1926 and fall 1929
when she started her graduate work at Jagiellonia.
Her older sister Jute HORN was living in Vienna >from 1919-24 while a medical student
at the University, and I have several addresses for her during her time there.
Can anyone please help for younger sister Bronia?
I am preparing a lecture to be given at the JCC Krakow on May 29, 2012 on the lives of
Rohatyn sisters Bronia and Jute HORN!
Kind regards and advance thanks,
