Professor Sir Joseph Rotblatt


Professor Rotblat, nuclear physicist, resigned from working on the development of  the atomic bomb and then went on to become a founder member of the Pugwash Movement concerned with science ethics.  

He is the last surviving signatory of the 1955 Bertrand Russell-Albert Einstein Manifesto
urging governments to renounce war.  In 1995 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work with the Pugwash Movement and his efforts to renounce the use of atomic weapons.  He has been a tireless advocate of peace.
