Let X and Y be the interiors of bordered Riemann surfaces with finitely generated fundamental groups and nonempty borders. We prove that every holomorphic isomorphism of the Teichmüller space of X onto the Teichmüller space of Y is induced by a quasiconformal homeomorphism of X onto Y . These Teichmüller spaces are not finite dimensional and their groups of holomorphic automorphisms do not act properly discontinuously, so the proof presents difficulties not present in the classical case.
