Looks like a list of the different lectures and names the professeurs & days/ times ( poster is damaged at corners where glued to wall and pulled off? , underlined in red are lectures by M. Gorny, and with tears. All the text is French and I do not speak French. But unique. Poss. Anton Gorny's own copy ?? From Wikipedia about Laurent Schwartz, mais il découvre le monde de la recherche mathématique et commence sa thèse à Clermont-Ferrand, où l'université de Strasbourg est délocalisée. Pendant que ses recherches progressent, la guerre bat son plein. Sa santé fragile l'empêche de rejoindre la résistance. L'inefficacité du mouvement trotskiste le remplit de frustration. Deux étudiants sont en même temps que Schwartz à Clermont : Felbau, un étudiant d'Ehresmann et Gorny, un réfugié politique qui avait passé une thèse avec Szolem Mandelbrojt. Feldau fut déporté à Auschwitz en novembre 1943 et Gorny en septembre 1942 ( from computer translation looks like Gorny died at Auschwitz concentration camp ?). The photograph just may be author with students & professors outside a University ?
