LOUIS PASTEUR and JOSEPH MEISTER



                                             
 The Second World War started in 1939. Rapidly the Nazi invaded France and arrived in Paris. The story goes that, in June1940, they ordered Joseph Meister to open Pasteur’s tomb in order to examine it.

Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) is considered the most important scientist in medical research for the nineteenth century with his process of ‘pasteurisation’ and his development of a vaccine against rabies. In 1885 using his rabies vaccine he successfully saved the life of a title boy called Joseph Meister. When Pasteur died in 1895 he was buried inside the Pasteur Institute, in Paris. And almost a half-century later Joseph Meister happened to became a caretaker at the Pasteur Institute.
According to a legend well known in France, when the Nazi came to Pasteur Institute,  Joseph Meister refused to comply with the violation by killing himself. Whether this is the truth or just a legend, the suicide of Joseph Meister happened in June 1940 is certain. Anyway he is the first man who got the rabies vaccine from Louis Pasteur./.
