Gustav Bazeners (1827 – 22.05.1883) was the teacher of German and Latin. The name of this modest teacher of the German school in Griva can not be found in any encyclopedia, but his student Janis Pliekshan became the famous Latvian poet Janis Rainis. The favorite teacher of the teenager opened a whole new world to him – from Homer to Goethe, and who knows what would have happened if they had not met each other.
