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.
