“To rid maternity hospitals of their horror, to preserve the wife for her husband and the mother for her child” - Ignaz Semmelweis

Friday 17 November 2017, 08:00pm - 10:00pm
Zsófia Lázár

By discovering the cause of childbed fever, Semmelweis indirectly saved millions of women from certain death. His reward was to be ridiculed, institutionalised, and murdered. As a prelude to the 200th anniversary of Semmelweis’ birthday, Zsófia, a politics graduate, and aspiring novelist, will help us understand his tragic but ultimately heart-warming story.

Location : Harris Seminar Room, Oriel College
