Abstract: Avoiding the theory of characters of finite groups and group algebras over fields of characteristic zero a ring theoretical proof is given for R. Brauer's theorem which asserts that the (modular) kernel of a block of a group algebra FG of a finite group over a field F of characteristic $ p > 0$ is a p-nilpotent normal subgroup of G.
