Emil Jand

Olympic Competitor nr 6856

Competed for R.-V. Germania of Leitmeritz. Leitmeritz, now Litomerice, is located in the Northwest of the (current) Czech Republic. The area, also known as Sudetenland, was heavily Germanized (and the Rüderverein Germania corresponds to this), but was included in Czechoslovakia after 1920. The German speaking population was expelled after 1945. For these reasons, I class the 5 rowers of this team as Austrians.
