German gynaecologist and pioneer in sexual reassignment surgery.
In 1930, following a trip to Paris, Warnekros took Einar Wegener as a patient, arranging a series of operations, transforming Wegener into Lili Elbe. This was following the operation performed at Magnus Hirschfeld's Institute for Sexual Research for the removal of Elbe's testicles. A series of three operations were performed. Lili died after the last operation when the transplanted womb was rejected by her body.
Kurt Warnekros died on 30 September 1949 in Paris, aged 66.
He is portrayed by Sebastian Koch in the 2015 film The Danish Girl.
