Mortimer von Falkenhausen

Below, I have translated von Falkenhausen’s entries in the Breslau university handbook. Notably here, although I have the signature of most of the other faculty members who taught Werner Weissenberg, I only have von Falkenhausen’s official stamp, which will have to serve.

This roughly translates as: Selected sections of special pathology and therapy of internal diseases, one hour, at a time to be determined.

*Frhr. denotes the second-lowest titled rank of the nobility.


Von Falkenhausen is still teaching at the University of Breslau in 1935-1936 – the last academic year with which I am concerned in the present context; he is registered as a non-resident professor, teaching in the department of medicine. He would have sworn the Oath of Loyalty to the National Socialist government and its chancellor in 1933, as a member of the Civil Service.
