This collection contains comprehensive registers by class for one of the three public elementary schools for boys in Rădăuți. Though there are some missing registers, most years are complete with separate books for grades I-VI. Beginning in the 1930s, the grades are divided into German and Romanian classes. Prior to World War II, it appears that the school was primarily attended by German and Jewish families. For example, in 1918 one second grade class consisted of 49 pupils of whom 31 were Roman-Catholic, 14 were Jewish, 3 were Greek-Catholic (Eastern Catholic), and 1 was Protestant. Of these 45 claimed German as their mother tongue (all the Jews and 30 of the Roman-Catholics), 3 Ruthenian (Ukrainian), and 1 Hungarian.
