This thesis will focus on the treatment of children as patients at the Reichsuniversität Straßburg Hospital. It will include case studies and data from the paediatric clinic, the psychiatric clinic, student research, the department of pathology, and will also examine other specimens of this research on children. The training of doctors and nurses was a central part of the children's clinic, and these trainees often treat patients, so this thesis will examine what they were taught. This thesis will examine the evacuation process and the medical treatment of children. There has not yet been a study on "everyday research" in which the Reichsuniversität Straßburg has participated. This study will identify new samples that have been discovered by comparing the available information attached to the samples to recreate a more complete picture of the hospital's paediatric patients.
