Frederik Paulsen Sr
In 1933 during his studies at Kiel Paulsen suffered from harassments and threats by the National Socialists due to his opposing political believes. Therefore, he fled to Malmö, Sweden via Basel in Switzerland to avoid his internment at a concentration camp. In Sweden, whose citizen he became in 1941, he laid the foundation for the establishment of FERRING (1950) by his research on hormones and their synthentical production. Upon accepting the Swedish citizenship he changed his given name Friedrich to Frederik.
