Therapists are political refugees. (From the history of the post-October exodus).

Prof. K.K. Vasyliev

Odessa National Medical University

There will be a hundred years since hundreds of thousands of political refugees were forced to leave the country after the Bolsheviks came to power. Post-October emigration went down in history as “cultural emigration” since a significant proportion of them was people with higher education. Among the latter were medical Professors. However, in the biographical Directories of Ukrainian medical Universities (A.A. Bogomolets Kiev National Medical University, Kharkov National Medical University and Odessa National Medical University), there is no information about some Professors therapists, and some have incomplete data. The article highlights the key milestones of the life and activities of Professors therapists from Kiev, Kharkov and Odessa, who became political emigrants. They are K.E. Wagner (1862—1950), P.A. Walter (1856—1932), F.V. Verbitsky (1881—1971), S.S. Gruzdev (1864—1936), A.I. Ignatovsky (1875—1955), A.I. Shcherbakov (1858—1944) and G.Yu. Yaveyn (1863—1920).
