Scientists in exile, 1933-1945
Between 1933 and 1945, various initiatives to support scientists in exile were set up in France, notably with the creation of the Comité des Savants. Louis Rapkine, a biochemist at the Institut de biologie physico-chimique (IBPC), was the real linchpin of the rescue of these scientists forced to flee their country. This historical episode is also closely linked to the creation of the CNRS in 1939. We find the same actors: Jean Perrin, Henri Laugier, Paul Langevin, Irène Joliot-Curie... This film was made using mostly unpublished photographic archives and the work of Diane Dosso, Denis Guthleben and Sébastien Balibar.
