“I, Julius Schlesinger, was born in Berlin on 10 February 1882 as the son of the merchant Hermann Schlesinger and his wife Sophie, née Bradt and am a member of the Jewish faith. I undertook my secondary school education at the Friedrichs-Gymnasium in Berlin, where I received my school-leaving certificate on 9 March 1901,” Julius Schlesinger states in the curriculum vitae of his dissertation.


Education and Places of Work

After graduating from high school, Schlesinger studied medicine in Berlin. His studies were interrupted by military service as a “one-year volunteer” in Würzburg in 1903/04. After taking his preliminary medical exams in Würzburg, Schlesinger continued his studies in Berlin and Freiburg. He passed the state examination in Freiburg on 27 July 1906. He received his doctorate the same year with the thesis “Über einen Fall völlig symptomlos verlaufener multipler Aneurysmabildung in der Aorta bei chronischer Lungenphthise”, which he had worked on under Christian Bäumler at the Freiburg Medical University Clinic.

To date it has not been possible to ascertain at what point Julius Schlesinger settled in Berlin as a specialist in gastrointestinal and metabolic diseases. There is currently also no further biographical data.
