Who was August Lösch?

August Lösch was a German economist, known for his seminal contributions to regional science and urban economics.

Born in Öhringen, Württemberg, Lösch obtained his doctorate from the University of Bonn in 1932. His magnum opus, Die räumliche Ordnung der Wirtschaft, appeared in 1940.

Lösch was a member of the "Church that Proclaims Itself", a Protestant group that spoke out openly against Hitler and was led by Pastor Niemoller. He refused to emigrate and went into hiding to continue his anti-Nazi work, primarily in German Kiel. Due to the deprivations of this illegal existence, he died, just days after World War II ended, from scarlet fever in Ratzeburg.
