Mohr indicates the word is an obsolete term, formerly called the Moors. The owners of pharmacies thus meant that many medicines came into medieval Europe from the East and from Africa. The current leadership of the pharmacy claims that this name wants to preserve the memory of the healing art of black healers, but realizes that for many people this term is discriminatory and offensive.

In the comments of the readers of the publication are given a reasonable question — what do people with surname mohr with the root and if they do not have to change the documents.
