We were looking for the Alumni Family...

"Grandpa Johannes studied medicine at Leipzig University in the 50s. That's where he met his wife Martha, who was studying art history at the time. In the late 70s, their son Matthias completed his study of medicine at the Karl Marx University. His daughter Anja followed in her father and grandfather's footsteps and studied medicine at Leipzig University in the 90s. In the meantime, she has given birth to a little girl. Lena is three years old now and loves cats, fish and sunflowers – perhaps she will one day study biology or veterinary medicine in Leipzig?"
