My great grandfather, Jacques Israel SCHRAMEK (1843-1903), who was born in
Lipnik nad Becvou (Leipnik), received his doctorate >from the University of
Freiburg on 14 December 1867. His thesis was on the "science of aesthetics".
Was this early for a Moravian Jew and does anyone know of any books or
articles that discuss Moravian Jews gaining doctorates in Germany and
Austria in the mid 19th century?
