1931 Winner of Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology Was Gay

CAMDEN, NJ, July 13, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — A just published paper by medical historian Leonard Vernon in Sociology International Journal explores the background of Otto Warburg the 1931 winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology. The story of how Otto Warburg a German Jew not only survived the Holocaust but thrived both scientifically and personally is one of the great mysteries of WW II. Speculation is that Adolf Hitler who had an extreme fear of cancer overlooked Warburg’s being Jewish because he knew Warburg was working on a cancer cure.

While the story of the Jewish scientist who survived in Nazi Germany has been told before a crucial part of the Warburg story has often been excluded, that being that Warburg was Gay and had a partner, Jacob Heiss for 50 years.

Vernon elaborates on the treatment of male homosexuals stating up to 15,000 homosexuals were detained in concentration camps, where special markings sewn onto camp uniforms, a pink triangle. It was in these camps they received brutal treatment by the Nazi guards that included torture, and in many cases murder. Vernon said, “The plight of the Gay population during the Third Reich is often overlooked and has all but been erased from history.”
