L’analyse du texte de Władysław Rydzewski sur la soviétisation de la biologie au début de la période du communisme en Pologne
Languages of publication
In 1952 Kultura the magazine of emigrants in Paris, published a series of articles on the Sovietization of Polish culture. Władysław Rydzewski, before the war an eminent zoologist then resistant during the occupation, lived after war in exile in London. He published in Kultura a detailed analysis of the situation of Polish biology. The ideological offensive of the communists, the imposition of the new Soviet biology with Lyssenkoism and the liquidation of learned societies and the autonomy of scientific institutions in Poland are the subjects of Rydzewski’s publication. This analysis is undoubtedly one of the most important testimonies concerning the history of biology during the Soviet occupation of Poland.
