Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann's 112th birthday was commemorated with a doodle published on Twitter by the internet giant. On July 3, Google released a doodle commemorating the birth anniversary of Professor Sir Ludwig Guttmann, a German-born British neurologist.
This year celebrates his 112th birthday, and he is recognized as the "creator of the Paralympic movement." The IT behemoth published a doodle on Twitter. They also gave a link to a blog that documents Guttmann's life and work.
“Happy birthday to German-born, British neurologist Prof. Sir Ludwig Guttmann! An innovator who helped patients rehabilitate through sports, Guttmann is the founder of the Paralympic movement,” they wrote. They also mentioned that the doodle was made by Ashanti Fortson, a cartoonist.
According to the Google blog, Guttmann was born in Tost, Germany, and got his PhD in 1924. He continued his studies after that, and by his 30s, he had established himself as "one of Germany's top neurosurgeons." In 1939, however, he fled to England due to the emergence of the Nazi party and "growing persecution of Jews in Germany."
In his new nation, he continued his paraplegia study and put his novel technique into action. Then, in 1948, he arranged “one of the first official competitive sporting events for wheelchair users,” a 16-person archery competition. Subsequently, it was dubbed the "Stoke Mandeville Games."
