The 1948 international congress of genetics in Sweden: People and politics.

Bengtsson, Bengt Olle LU and Tunlid, Anna LU (2010) In Genetics 185(3). p.709-715
Abstract
The International Congresses have played an important role in the history of genetics. The Eighth International Congress, which in 1948 was held in Sweden, celebrated the conclusion of the war against Nazism and many new decisive scientific advances. It also signaled a hardening of the fight against Lysenkoism, which was growing in strength in the Soviet Union. A rare document is available from the Congress-an amateur film made by a young delegate, Nils Nybom. With its help a living description can be given of the scientific and political melees in which the delegates were involved.
