Biographical Sketch of Aron Gurwitsch
Aron Gurwitsch was born January 17, 1901, in Vilna, Lithuania, then a part of Imperial Russia. The Jews of Lithuania were long known for their austere rationalism, and, with the exception of his father, Gurwitsch is descended from rabbinical scholars on both sides. Meyer Gurwitsch exported timber from Russia to Germany before the Great War and westernized himself by reading deeply in English, French, and German literature. After his fortune was destroyed by the war and the Russian Revolution, Gurwitsch’s father came to America.
