About Dr. Marcus Born

Marcus, born 1819, became a doctor.

Marcus began to practise medicine in Kempen on the Polish–German border, where he was soon much in demand from one and all including the Polish aristocracy.

In 1849 he had himself elected to the provincial parliament as a representative of the German population. Thereupon the wealthy Polish clientele withdrew from his practice, which he was unable to sustain.

In 1852 he moved to Görlitz, where he became the town’s most respected doctor. As medical officer of health (Kreisphysikus) from 1860, Marcus was responsible for significant improvements in sanitation.

He died rather young, at the age of 55, in 1874.
