Every year, the Margot Friedländer Award grants up to 5,000 euros for Germany-based projects by young people that deal with the Holocaust, its witnessing, transmission and historical lines of continuity. The implementation of the awarded project ideas takes place between January and July of the respective year. During this time, we as a foundation offer extensive pedagogical support in the form of seminars, counselling and networking.

The aim of the award is to call on and support young people to stand up against contemporary forms of anti-Semitism, racism, antiziganism and exclusion and fight for a pluralistic migration society.
