Georges Wellers (1905-1991), French biologist and historian, worked for many years at Sorbonne, where he held a position of Director of Research Laboratory of Medical Department. In 1941 he was arrested by the nazis and spent more than three years in nazi concentration camps, first in Drancy near Paris, then in Auschwitz and Buchenwald. Despite all the deprivations during his captivity, Georges lived a long and productive life. He excelled in a prominent scientific career, was awarded the Legion of Honor Rosette as its officer, was vice-president of the association of nazi-camp survivors of France, and was the only French witness at the Eichmann war crime trial in Israel.
