|Ernst Flechsig was the son of a well-known physician in Bad Elster, Germany. He first went to school in Bad Elster, and later visited the secondary school Thomasgymnasium in Leipzig. He began to study chemistry and natural sciences at the University of Leipzig in 1874. He earned a PhD in chemistry in 1878 in Heidelberg. He worked in Proskau (today Prószków, Poland), and then in Breslau (today Wrocław, Poland) until 1887. After working shortly in Westphalia, he settled in Hirschberg, Thuringia. He fell ill with severe pleurisy (schwere Rippenfellentzündung), forcing him to quit his job and move back to his parents in Bad Elster. He did not recover from his illness and died after a few months.(1) |
