An excerpt from the article 35 facts about Nikola Tesla

His father came to Maribor and begged his son to return home, but he refused. He was soon detained by the police for not having a residence permit and returned to the Gospic. When his father died in April of that year at sixty, Nikola hired himself as a teacher at his old school. Financial help came from his family; two of Nikola's uncles raised enough money for him to go to Prague and study there.
