Town with a Jewish Past: The Schools of Czernowitz

 
Seminarul Pedagogic Universitar (SPU):
a high school for boys located on Schulgasse (General Prezan)

 
 From Marcel Spiegler, a native of Czernowitz:

A
t SPU (Seminarul Pedagogic Universitar) the graduate teachers were tested by conducting classes and were graded. The school was a single-floor old building and was attached to the director's apartment. The yard was pretty big--we had a whole ball field and enough room to kick a soccer ball. In 1937 a new modern building was added. To be admitted to this school, you had to pass an entrance exam. I remember the following teacher's names and the subjects they taught:
Rumanian: Tarnavsky
French: Sauciuc Saveanu and Calos Math Schmid
Latin: Ratio
Botany, Zoology and Geography: Tzopa
Drawing and Calligraphy: second brother Tarnavsky

The grades were 1 to 10, 10 being the best and below 5 was a failing grade.

The students  were two-thirds Jewish and I remember most of them, and what became of them:
