Subject: [Cz-L] Education of Jewish woman in Czernowitz

Dear list members,

I have been researching my Czernowitz Kranzdorf relatives for some time. But have recently managed to find a lot of new information.

To my surprise, Irene Kranzdorf, born about 1906, attained a Phd in German literature from Vienna university. Was this common for young Jewish women from Czernowitz to go to Vienna for further education?
She was also a concert pianist!

Her thesis was on Faust in the novel. A rather strange topic I think for a nice Jewish girl to be writing about...

I would appreciate your thoughts and any background you could share.

Kind regards

Michael Kransdorff
