Jews, Church, & Civilization VII

INTRODUCTION

Sabin’s professional ally Hilary Koprowski played a key and prerequisite role.

SABIN: Albert Bruce Sabin was born in 1906 in Bialystock, Russia (now Poland) to Jewish parents, Jacob and Tillie Saperstein. In 1921 the family immigrated to America. In 1930 Albert became a naturalized US citizen and in the process changed his name to Sabin.

KOPROWSKI: In 1939, subsequent to the Nazi invasion, Dr. Hilary Koprowski and his wife Irene, a biologist, fled Poland to Brazil. There he worked for the Rockefeller Foundation in Rio de Janeiro. Koprowski’s field of research employing his signature live–vaccine modality was instrumental in finding a vaccine for yellow fever; then, polio. The lines are blurred as to where Koprowski’s polio vaccine development ended–off and where Sabin’s polio vaccine achieved a breakthrough. Koprowski’s list of honors received around the world is long and numbing.
