Abstract


Blood research or blood mania? The historical context of Ludwik Hirszfeld’s theory and practice. A Conference Report

Abstract

On 24-25 April 2015, the Centre for Historical Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Berlin, together with the Ludwik Hirszfeld Institute of Immunology and Experimental Therapy of the Polish Academy of Sciences (Wrocław) and the Institute for the History of Medicine and Ethics in Medicine of the Charité (Berlin), organised a conference on Ludwik Hirszfeld (1884-1954). Commemorating the 130th anniversary of the birth and the 60th anniversary of the death of this famous Polish microbiologist and serologist, the conference brought together Polish and German scholars, historians as well as natural scientists. As suggested by the conference title, discussions were focused on the question of why historical understanding of serological research must take into account manifold metaphorical uses and the multi-layered semantics of “blood”, especially in the context of the first half of the 20th century and with respect to the Jewish background of the founder of serological anthropology, Ludwik Hirszfeld, a victim of Nazi terror himself.
