I seem to know the wrong people ... Fraktur and the German handwriting have
certainly not died (yet), only marginalized
I have asked a friend who is studying maths in Munich (she's in her last
year). She says that all the students there have to be familiar with the
handwritten form, both recognition and reproduction, as the professors use
both (remember the vector business?) So far for the unfamiliarity amongst
the German math intellegentia.
