The Margot Friedländer Award
“What is this award for? It is not for a success in sports or a good essay that you have written. It is rather a recognition for something infinitely important, for your human commitment. Speak your mind! Be vigilant! Be human!”
~ Margot Friedländer
Since 2014, the Margot Friedländer Award has called on young people to engage with the Holocaust, its witnessing, transmission and historical continuity lines in interactive projects. The aim is to support young people in standing up against today’s forms of antisemitism, racism, antiziganism and exclusion and for a pluralistic migration society. Named after the contemporary witness and Holocaust survivor Margot Friedländer, the award keeps the memory of the crimes of National Socialism alive in younger generations. The Schwarzkopf Foundation Young Europe contributes to this with prize money and educational support for innovative project ideas.
⇒ The next call for proposals will start in July 2021! Please note that the Margot-Friedländer-Award is an award that requires German skills. More details on the conditions of participation and all other information can be found here in German.
