Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alfred Serge Balachowsky (15 August 1901, Karotcha /Kursk - 1983 Paris ) was a French entomologist born in Russia. He specialised in Homoptera: Coccoidea but also worked on Coleoptera. Balachowsky worked at the Mus um national d'histoire naturelle. In 1948 he was elected president of the Soci t entomologique de France. Balachowsky was part of the Prosper Network in Paris during WWII, a spy network run by the British SOE. After the network was infiltrated and betrayed, Balachowsky was arrested and ultimately imprisoned at the Buchenwald Concentration Camp outside Weimar, Germany. There, he was put to work developing a vaccine for typhus. He also went to work helping the various underground groups inside the camp and established a network of contacts who fed him information from the camp's commanders.
