Abstract: This paper describes a map $ f$ from a metric space $ X$ (having the same dimension at each of its points) onto a space $ Y$ such that $ \dim X > \dim Y > 0$ with the property that $ \dim K \geqslant \dim f(K)$ for every closed set $ K$ contained in $ X$. This answers a question posed by Eilenberg in 1936 in The Scottish Book. This question was answered with a more complicated example by Rubin, Schori, and Walsh.
