Thalidomide The Fifty Year Fight

Over fifty years ago the drug Thalidomide shocked the world. For ten years a battle for compensation was fought against one of Britain’s largest corporations. One man stood up against this injustice, but this man would see those he was fighting for, turn against him and many attempted to silence his story. But his actions set in motion a chain of events which changed the lives of every Thalidomide child born in the UK and the legacy of that battle continues today, over fifty years on from the tragedy, campaigners are now focusing on the inventors of the drug.
