At the bottom of a photograph of my great grandfather is written the word
Jurjew.
Jurjew was a small town known also as Dorpat and in to-day Estonia as
Tartu. It was famous for its well known liberal University many Jews >from
the Baltic region and other places in Russia (and not only) tended to get
their higher education as medical doctors, pharmacists, lawyers and other
specialties. Tuition was in Russian and German at those days.
