Siegwart-Horst Günther:

Prof. Dr. Dr. med. habil. Siegwart-Horst Günther (1925-2015), Professor of Tropical Medicine, was a liberal opponent of Hitler and therefore imprisoned in Buchenwald concentration camp towards the end of the war. From 1945 to 1950, he studied medicine, philosophy and Egyptology. In 1953 he was appointed to the University of Cairo, after which he taught at various universities in Egypt, Great Britain, the United States and Poland; he also worked with Albert Schweitzer in the jungle hospital of Lambaréné. From 1990 to 1995 he taught and worked at the University and University Hospital of Baghdad (Iraq). Since 1998 he was Vice-President of the Albert Schweitzer World Academy of Medicine in Warsaw. As President of the Yellow Cross International he treated children in Iraq after the second Gulf War from 1991 to 1995. During this time, he provided scientific evidence that a previously unknown, usually fatal disease ("Gulf War Syndrome") was caused by depleted uranium (DU), the depleted uranium projectiles used by the US aggressors. For these and other humanitarian and scientific services, he received numerous international awards, whereas in his country of birth he suffered shameful treatment and maltreatment. His documentary brochure on the devastating effects of DU shells published by AHRIMAN was one of the first publications of its kind in the world.
