This is my father, Morits Shouman, during his studies at the medical faculty of Geiselberg University. The picture was taken in Geiseberg in 1908, Atelier Carl Maria. According to my father, my grandparents were religious. They must have tried raising their children to be religious. My father got some sort of religious education in his childhood. He diverged from religion when he was an adult. My grandfather made sure that his children got a good education. My father went to Revelskaya lyceum and studied there for ten years. Upon graduation Father left for Germany and entered a university in Geiselberg. He studied there and obtained his degree of Doctor of Medicine. After that he was on probation for two years at the university clinic. Then he went back to Estonia, but he wasn't entitled to work on the territory of the Russian empire with a degree from Geiselberg University. He had to sit for some exams in a Russian university to confirm his doctor's degree. He left for Tartu. It was called Yuriev at that time. He stayed at his grandfather's brother's place. My father started getting ready for the exams in all the subjects taught at the medical faculty of the university. He passed all the exams and in 1911 he was reinstated the title of a doctor at the medical faculty of the Emperor's Yuriev University.
