    Günther Schwarberg (14 October 1926 – 3 December 2008) lived in Bremen-Vegesack, Germany and was critical of Nazi rule during his youth. He became a German journalist and author following his World War II military service and worked at the Weser Courier and the Bremer Nachrichten in Bremen before joining Der Stern. His 1979 series of articles and subsequent book The SS Doctor and the Children documented World War II-era war crimes committed in Neuengamme concentration camp and Bullenhuser Damm School in Hamburg. In 1982, Heinrich Jöst gave him images of the Warsaw ghetto. Heinrich Jöst was a sergeant in the German Wehrmacht stationed near Warsaw in September 1941 who spent one day shooting rolls of film of the ghetto, which he developed and then hid for decades. Günther Schwarberg and lawyer Barbara Hüsing, his wife, were decorated with the Anne Frank medal in 1987.
