Alice Teichova (née Schwarz) (19 September 1920 – 12 March 2015) was an Austrian-born British economist and economic historian. She was considered one of the leading economic historians of modern Central Europe. Her publications included a landmark survey of the international business relations of Czechoslovakia, An Economic Background to Munich, published in 1974. She co-authored her most recent work, Nation, State and the Economy in History (2003), with the Austrian economist historian, Herbert Matis.
Teichova was born into a Jewish family in Vienna on 19 September 1920 to Arthur Schwarz, a watchmaker, and Gisela (née Leist). She was raised in a single room residence in the Floridsdorf district of Vienna, where her father owned a watch shop. The family fled Austria in the late 1930s following the rise of the Nazis and the Anschluss in 1938. Alice, who had obtained a job as a maid in Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey, England, was the first to flee the country. The rest of the family later joined her in the United Kingdom. She met her husband, Mikulás Teich, who became a leading Slovak science historian, at a refugee club in the UK in 1940.
Alice Teichova died on 12 March 2015, at the age of 94.
