Abstract

When the German Society of Neurosurgery instituted the FEDOR KRAUSE- and the OTFRID FOERSTER-Medals in 1950, it was led by the scope of keeping alive in our Society the memory of these two German pioneers in Neurosurgery. The bestowing of one of these medals is celebrated by a Memorial Lecture and constitutes the highest honor, bestowed by the German Society of Neurosurgery to one of the most outstanding Neurosurgeons of today.
