Edith Stein

Edith Stein's parents – Auguste Courant and Siegfried Stein – both come from Upper Silesia. After their marriage in 1871 they lived in Gliwice, where Siegfried's mother ran a wood trade. But the cooperation was unfortunate, and in 1881 the couple decided to move to Lublinitz, Augustes' home region, where they founded their own company in the same industry. The new company did not meet the Steins' expectations and they were continuously supported financially by Augustes family. The decision to move to Lower Silesia in 1890, in search of better conditions, was made.
