Gaspar Scheurer M.D., doctor of internal medicine, doctor of labor hygiene, Augsburg, Germany

I first met Dr. Géza Kovács in my school days when he was a young gymnastics teacher. He had a deep influence on my development. He taught me to have courage, to face danger, to be quick and responsive; these were his most important teachings for me during those difficult times and uncertain life circumstances.

I have to thank him for so much, and likewise I know many other people who, through his teaching and example, became outstanding scholars and successful professionals.
