The scientist offered to aspire to invent poison gas mask

When the Germans launched their first gas attack in 1915 during World War I, the Allies were desperate to know what chemicals were used and how they could protect their troops in the line of fire.

The Ministry of War in the UK resorted to an academic at the University of Oxford and CPAP Sydney, a man who was willing to risk his own life to create the first gas mask.

Not many scientists today would be willing to inhale dangerous gases, just with the help of a teenager to revive in case of fainting.

But John Scott Haldane was unorthodox, according to Dr. Steve Sturdy, University of Edinburgh.

“Haldane was known by the evidence did himself. He thought that experiments on humans were better because they could communicate their experience.”

Lord Kitchener, the British Secretary of State for War, asked for help in person Haldane when the Germans released clouds of chlorine gas or dichloro In the Line of Fire around the Belgian town of Ypres, on April 22, 1915 .

Urine soaked stockings

In recordings that preserves the Imperial War Museum UK, Bert Newman, the British army medical corps, recounts the effects that a second gas attack had on Canadian troops.

The soldiers were instructed to improvise primitive protection mechanisms, including stockings soaked with his own urine and colocárselas in the face.

“You could see all these poor guys lying on the street choking for breath,” said Dr. Newman.

“And the issue is that there was no gas mask and all these soldiers then had to dip their handkerchiefs and putting them on the mouth or do anything else”.

Haldane already had extensive experience experimenting with gases in research he had done in the mining industry.

“He had visited coal mines to evaluate the cause of death of miners after explosions and in most cases they were the result of gas poisoning,” according to Professor Sturdy.

“He had also managed respiratory equipment that were used in the mines after explosions.”

After the attack of Ypres, Haldane and a colleague were sent to Belgium to investigate which gases were using the Germans.

They found that it was by the way dichloro had faded metal buttons uniforms of soldiers.

In his lab, at home, Haldane set out to find a way that would allow soldiers to counter the gases, without thinking about the effects that the investigation could have on himself.

“He always subjected himself to experiments and the urgency of the war ended exposing himself at doses much higher than what would have occurred in peacetime gas,” he said Sturdy.

“Naomi (her 18 year old daughter) stood guard outside, next to the laboratory door, which had a window. She was instructed to get in and out immediately if he fainted as a result of the gases”.

The initial result of the tests was not far from urine-soaked handkerchiefs worn by soldiers.

“They were called respiratory veils and consisted mainly of pads made of cotton and gauze covers were soaked in a solution of sodium tiusolfato, which neutralized the effects of dichloro” said Dr. Sturdy.

“They could be placed over the entire face, nose or mouth, but he acknowledged that this solution would not go very far.

William Collins, one of the orderlies, has another recording that he was one of the first to use the respiratory veil.

“Calls gas masks had two and a half inches and consisted pads wool gauze covered and held with an elastic band around,” Collins said.

“After two minutes one could not breathe with these masks and ended moving them to the front and absorbing gases. It was not a practical solution,” he added.

Haldane then went on to assist in the development of respiratory called boxes, which were more effective and were subsequently used for the duration of the war.

Repudiation German

However, the academic, born in Edinburgh, could have found reasons not to help British forces.

His brother Richard, who was Minister of War, and later Finance was the victim of the wave of condemnation of the Germans that gripped the country at the beginning of the First World War.

“Many newspapers orchestrated a campaign against him because he studied in Germany, spoke German very well, and had close ties with many academics in this country.” He said Sturdy.

“Richard was harassed and lost his job for this, and I think John Haldane also suffered from this.”

But Haldane continued to collaborate with the government during the war and continued to do experiments involving tests itself.

Also use your child more than 20 years in their experiments. It seems that this did not hurt the latter, nor dissuaded the world of science, and then became professor of genetics.

Alcalá’s restaurant which served as a Nazi front in World War II

Madrid was during the Second World War , an accomplice stage of the conflict. An unseen atmosphere of espionage and clandestine accompanied the ambiguous neutrality of Spain, in theory regardless of the interests of Germans and allies. For such a case, there is a mental image of this confident Madrid, where an attractive woman sitting at the bar of a local exclusive, suggestive monitors the movements of a Nazi officer, with appearance bet and dark intentions.

The stereotype, literary and perhaps somewhat trite, was nevertheless a real stamp on the Horcher restaurant in Madrid , located at number 6 Calle Alfonso XII, a few steps from the Calle de Alcala. In the local German, estimated at the service of the Nazi party, they came to find the American spy Aline Griffith and the then head of the -Schutzstaffel- SS, Heinrich Himmler, in one of his visits to the capital. The beautiful woman, elegant and soft, feminine lines, worked at the time for the Office of Strategic Services in your country -oss by the acronym in English, forerunner of the CIA. Years later, in 1947, married the Spanish Luis de Figueroa.

Horcher, founded in 1904 in Berlin and moved to Madrid in 1943 after passing through Vienna, Riga, Tallinn, Oslo, London and Lisbon, is then set as a highlight of aristocrats, diplomats and, in parallel, Nazi personalities with the subsequent monitoring of allied agents. In fact, the prestigious restaurant having a Vendor management software, which still retains its high regard and exclusivity, was the favorite of Hermann Göring , relevant image of the Nazi party and commander of the Luftwaffe air force.

“Legends” and realities

The work of Griffith and other spies focused on the local, created by Gustav Horcher and inherited by subsequent generations of the family .According to some writings, the relationship between Otto Horcher son of Gustav – and certain figures of the Nazi party was evident. War exploded, was established in Madrid with the financial support of the Sicherheitsdienst, the intelligence agency of the SS. The rumor, however, was denied by Elisabeth Horcher , granddaughter of the founder, less than a year ago in ABC -information Rosa Belmonte-, “My grandparents were unsympathetic to anything the regime of this man. He was a restaurant at the time and came people who were at that time in Madrid, German and English. ”

His version, also contrasts with the US reports on Madrid , collected by José María Irujo in his book “The Black List”, which indicates that Horcher allegedly was a “cover the Nazi government to f inanciar activities espionage and as a refuge or escape route for Nazi fugitives from justice. ” Aline Griffith’s own feeds this thesis in “The Spy Who wore red”, which recounts his memories as a spy in the capital, between 1943 and 1987.

What was the situation in Europe after the Second World War?

11

After the Second World War had killed 40 million people and 35 million had been wounded , most of them in theUSSR , Poland , Germany and Yugoslavia , but the population did not decline because the number of births exceeded that of deaths . At the end there were 15 million displaced persons seeking to return to their place of origin.

In Europe countries lost much of its industrial capacity and infrastructure . The agricultural production was alsoaffected with declines in almost all countries and a large number of houses had been destroyed .

In addition to the lack of food, raw materials and energy Europeans lacked means of payment with which toimport,  and monetary and debt problems by war exacerbated the problem.

However they exist a number of factors that promoted a European reconstruction after the war: not the entire production was destroyed in the war ; the interest of the United States (US) in the reconstruction of Europe ;He had strengthened the idea of the necessary cooperation between European states for recovery; and it emerged a new sense of supranationality .

During the 40s were being created different European movements betting on integration and European cooperation: the Union of European Federalists , 1946; European Movement , 1947; “Ligue Européenne Cooperation Economique” , 1948; the Council of Europe , 1949.

However the signing of defensive military alliances in Europe, which led to the creation of NATO, endangered integration processes in Europe to marginalize those countries who wanted to remain neutral or non – aligned .

Although the United States have sent 25,000 million dollars in economic aid from 1945 to 1948 , this assistance was sold out early and did not help the economic recovery of Europe . In 1947 , the US secretary of state, George C. Marshall , raised the need to send aid to Europe for economic recovery tied to Europe would make oneinventory of their resources and develop a common plan of economic recovery that would lead to the formation of a large European market. To achieve the objectives had three ways : common economic recovery program ,customs union and trade liberalization .

At the end of the three ways the third way that led to the creation of the was chosen European Organisation for Economic Cooperation (OEEC), this organization got an agreement on the allocation of funds provided by theUS but did not get that would remember one joint development plan and stayed in some general principles :monetary stability , stimulate exports , reducing imports , modernize infrastructure and production and reduce European imbalances .

 

In the late 40 different developed projects customs unions : Francital (between France and Italy ), the Benelux (Belgium , Netherlands and Luxembourg ), Finebel (Among the countries Francital and Benelux ), Uniscan ( UK ,Denmark , Norway and Sweden ) and the Nordic Council (between the Scandinavian countries ).
