The only Jewish teacher at the state Gymnasium was regarded as a thorn in the sides of the many anti-Semites in the town. His fellow teachers often made his life bitter, and his Polish students, not parti-cularly distinguished in their studies, in their hatred of the Jewish people were most capable and prolific, trying to trip him up and fault him at every possible opportunity.
