Pecharova 9, 140 00 Praha 4, Czechia

Julie Moschelesová (1892-1956) was an excellent, world reputed geographer of fair individuality. Her scientic work, published mostly in German and English, has been already described in this journal in 1952. On the occassion of the 1OOth anniversary of her birth, one of her oldest students recalls her destiny. A Jewish woman who left Prague at the beginning of the Nazi occupation, she lived in Australia for six years. Afterwards, she returned to Czechoslovakia, where her work was not fully appreciated.
