Elementary school Botičská

Period: 1918–1945

In the early October 1938, when the Poppers arrived in Prague, Robert was eight. He continued his school attendance and went to a nearby, German speaking school. He remembers walking there from his home Na Slupi No.8 in Prague 2. It was only round the corner. At school he had hardly any friends – no wonder. He spent only some six weeks there before they had to flee again. At school he was fond of arithmetics and drawing and proud of being able to draw a Czech flag. In 1938, there were only 7 basic schools with German language as the media in Prague. With the increasing number of refugees, many Prague schools organized charity collections to collect money for the refugees.
