Louis Pasteur / Robert Koch: Parallel Fates

Französische Botschaft in Deutschland

Looking back at the work of these two medical giants on the occasion of Pasteur's 200th birthday!

Although the two great men, Louis Pasteur and Robert Koch, are well known in their respective countries, the reciprocal influence of the work of these contemporaries is often ignored. This is due in particular to the political context that opposed Bismark’s Prussia (and later Germany) to France at that time. Their work was the basis of breakthroughs that we would like to share with you.

This event will be the occasion to screen a documentary which will be followed by a discussion with two specialists of Koch and Pasteur.

We hope to tell you more about the little-known yet fascinating relationship between these two great scientists on the occasion of Louis Pasteur’s 200th birthday !


This is an in-person event. The film will be screened simultaneously in French and German. The debate will be in French with a live translation into German. Please note that the number of participants is limited and identification will be required to attend the event. If you would like to attend, please book your spot here.
