Konstantin Skryabin in Königsberg: forgotten pages of the biog­raphy



Based on memoirs of the outstanding Russian helminthologist Kons­tan­tin Skryabin (1878—1972), the article reconstructs the circumstances of his stay in Königsberg in 1912—1913. The research introduces the archive docu­ments that reflect the attempts of the Soviet officials to commemorate Skryabin in Kaliningrad in 1956—1957 and gives recommendations for preserving the me­mory of Skryabin in the contemporary Kaliningrad region. The author ana­ly­ses a curious statement in historiography concerning the issue of the estab­lishment of a plate in memory of Skryabin.
