Austrian Town Schools: Ottnang am Hausruck Primary School


Figure 1.-The photo shows the 5th grade class of 1950 at the primary school in Ottnang am Hausruck, a municipality in Upper Austria district of Vöcklabruck. Upper Austria isthe western part of northern Austria, bordering on both Germany (Bavaria) and the Czrch Republic. After World War II, Upper Austria was partitioned between the American zone to the south and the Soviet zone to the north. Vöcklabruck and Ottnang am Hausruck wwre in the American zone. A few boys and the teacher wear Bavarian jackets. Almost all the boys wear short pants. We see the girls wearing Dirdls and pinafores. Most of the children are barefoot. That was not entirely a matter of the post-War poverty. We note Austrian children from rural areas going barefoot before the War.
