Medical recollections
There is 1 message in this section.

K. D. Fischer from Germany. Posted 22 Jul 2003.
I'm a medical historian who spent one year of his university education in Edinburgh (1971/72 in fact). Watching and listening to all the material from the past brings back memories, especially as I remember some things from my own childhood in East Germany, which in many ways was not so much different.
I would sometimes follow my mother, who was a public health worker looking after mothers and children, to her appointments. Cod liver oil, sunbaths to prevents rickets, immunization are vividly and perhaps nostalgically remembered. I am especially grateful because the material you have made available on the web will allow me to use it with my medical students, giving them a glimpse of what is for me still the recent past and allowing them to listen to real voices.
heartfelt thanks, K.D. Fischer
