Alfred Struwe April 22, 1927 – February 13, 1998[1] was a German actor, best known for his television role as Dr Alexander Wittkugel in Zahn um Zahn

Struwe was born in Marienburg, West Prussia today Malbork in Poland, the son of a postman, and grew up there with five siblings His first acting experience was in Hitler Youth summer camps[1] In 1944 he was called up first into the Reich Labour Service, then into the military After attending officer training school in Hanover, he was sent along with other young contemporaries into battle in the final days of World War II In 1945 he rejoined his family in Leipzig Since his father, Gustav, was opposed to his making acting his career, he instead had to attend a police academy, until in 1948 it closed and he was also discharged From then on, he was able to dedicate himself entirely to acting He had already performed part-time in amateur productions and taken private acting lessons during his police training In 1949 he joined the theater company in Greiz[1][2] and subsequently was engaged in Brandenburg, Zittau, Cottbus, Karl-Marx-Stadt and Dresden

Struwe made his first appearance before the cameras in 1954, in the DEFA co-production Leuchtfeuer[1] Then beginning in the 1960s, his face was often seen on both movie and television screens Several times he played the part of the would-be assassin of Hitler, Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg[2] In 1985 he played what would become his signature role, the eccentric dentist Dr Alexander Wittkugel in the television series Zahn um Zahn "A Tooth for a Tooth"[2] This was so successful that in response to viewer demand the 7 projected episodes were extended and in the end 21 stories of "Dr Wittkugel's Practices" were produced[1]

Struwe's daughter Catharina Struwe is likewise an actress, with, for example, a longstanding engagement at the Neue Bühne in Senftenberg

With the dissolution of the Iron Curtain, the popular actor's life became quieter Struwe made occasional further appearances on stage and on television, but otherwise enjoyed his retirement He died in Potsdam in 1998 after a lengthy illness caused by pneumonia and was buried in the Southwest Cemetery in Stahnsdorf[1]
