Abstract

is article shows the impact of the interwar eugenics movement in Central Europe upon Polish biologists to postwar Lysenkoism by analyzing the actions of Polish geneticist Stanisław Skowron. Skowron was both a supporter of eugenics and Lysenkoism; while the former attitude seems to have been sincere, it is likely that Skowron's advocacy of the Lysenko theory was motivated by his concerns for political repression, and infl uenced by his experiences in Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War.
