The Medical School “Dorothea Christiane Erxleben”

In 1965, the “Doro­thea Chris­tiane Erxle­ben” Medi­cal School in the East German town of Qued­lin­burg became a trai­ning centre for foreign students from newly libe­ra­ted states. By 1991, more than 2,000 students from over 60 states and natio­nal libe­ra­tion move­ments had passed through its class­rooms. This inter­na­tio­na­lism shaped the life of the small town for over three deca­des, but today this history has been erased from public memory.
