Siegwart Horst Günther
Professor Siegwart Horst Günther (24 February 1925 in Halle (Saale) – 16 January 2015) was a German physician and activist. He once worked with Albert Schweitzer in Africa. He was a prominent proponent of the disputed claim that the use of depleted uranium in munitions causes cancers, birth defects and other pathologies. In 2007 the Nuclear-Free Future Award honored for the third time Prof. Günther for refusing to back down to pressure and for visiting Iraq to study the real-life consequences of depleted uranium use.
