Time For Your Meds (2015)


Hospital at Letchworth Village — Thiells, New York

Hilary Koprowski tested his live-virus vaccine on a human male child for the first time in February 1950 at Letchworth Village. When the first subject didn’t die after being injected, they administered the concoction to 19 other children. When patients died at the facility, their brains were extracted from their skulls and kept on display in the laboratory.

  1. It’s amazing how recent such cruelty and ignorance existed. There are so many examples in history that illustrate how humans are not kind to each other. Wait … it’s still happening!
    Another interesting, thought-provoking image, Robert.
