Jakob Schug – painter and art educator

The book by Fred Baldes about the baumholder painter and art educator Jakob Schug is here. Jakob Schug left his father’s plow at the age of 15 to become a primary school teacher. After the First World War he taught at secondary schools in the districts of Ottweiler and Saarbrücken. One of his students was Fred Baldes, who described Jakob Schug as an excellent educator. His curiosity and emotion moved Fred Baldes to describe the story and images of Jakob Schug in a 135-page book.

The publication can be purchased for 5,- Euro in the city office during opening hours.
