Dr. Nikolae Minovici committed suicide 12 times, his testimony is shocking
Dr Nikolae Minovici was born in the family of a doctor called Stephan Minovic in Romania on October 23, 1868, and was the seventh child.
He appears in various documents as one of the most innovative doctors in the world, because he committed suicide 12 times while doing research, where he wanted to know how this process works and its effects on a survivor.
The website Historia of Romania explains that unlike his brothers, Nikolae first studied art at the Belle-Arte College in 1861 after finishing high school.
While working as an architect, he studied medicine, graduating in 1898, from the following year to 1901, continuing his studies in Berlin, Germany and working at the Institute of Pathological Anatomy and in the Moabit hospital, then back to Romania.
Research on suicide
In 1904 he published a 200-page book of his own research on suicide, entitled ‘Studiu asupra Spânzurării’ (Study on Suicide). In its bilingual edition (Romanian and French) he described how he put the chain around his neck 12 times, wanting to know how it would grow, so that he could be a witness to it.
For the first time, he tried to put himself on the rope while lying on the bed. As he explained in this book, he did not feel well because he felt his body as if it was caught by electricity. “I felt like a lot of electric shocks and each one ended. I lost my way of thinking.”
Another time, Dr. Nikolae hung a rope two meters high, put it around his neck, and survived for 5 seconds but was stopped by the workers who had to rescue him. “My eyes were closed, as if by an invisible force. I heard the path of the longing spirit, I heard the ears are bursting, the evil is shouting. I no longer hear the voice of the workers pulling the ropes.”
For the 12th time he committed suicide, this doctor did it for 4 seconds but his legs seemed to touch the ground. Then he signaled to the workers who had stopped him to help him. She explained that it affected her throat for four months.
In general, Dr Nikolae’s side effects during his treatment included blurred vision, skin discoloration, ringing in the ears and a sore throat to the point where he had to inject something through his mouth, which he was eating.
Dr. Nikolae made a name for himself in Romania, because he founded the Institute of Forensic Medicine, in 1926 he became the Mayor of the III Blue Sector in Bucharest, and was appointed as the Mayor of Băneasa without requiring an election.
He died on June 26, 1941 of throat cancer. According to Radio România Internaţional, he had given his property to the State for 5 years, including his house, land and the purchase of his art supplies. Another was given to families who cared for orphans and orphans.
