Abstract

Dr. Jacob Churg (1910-2005) was born in Dolhinow, a Belarusian city that later became a part of Poland and in 1939 was ceded to Russia during the partition of Poland by Russia and Germany. Churg’s father, Wolf, was a physician, and his mother, Gita, a dentist. Jacob recalled reading his father’s medical books and pestering him with many questions. He graduated with a medical degree from the University of Wilno (Poland) in 1933 and started working at the Department of Internal Medicine. He realized that he was less confident dealing with patients than with “tissues.” In 1936, at the same university, he began his studies in experimental pathology.
