Transcript of Ferdinand J Cohn

Ferdinand was very smart from a young age. Ferdinand
started reading when he was 2 years old, he then started
school at the age of 4, he then entered The Breslau
Gymnasium (a high school) in the year, 1835. Unfortunately,
a hearing defect slowed down all his process at school.
This effected shyness and sensitivity as a young man.
But then in 1842, he was accepted to enter The University
Of Breslau. 'Influenced by professors Heinrich Goeppert and
Christian Nees Von Esenbeck', Ferdinand became interested
in botany. But because he was jewish, he was expelled from
taking the degree at Breslau. So he then applied for an
exemption from this restriction, but was (again) refused.
In 1846, Ferdinand went to Berlin and studied microscopic
animals. On November, the 13th, 1848 (at the age of nineteen),
he recieved his decorate in botany.
