Prize for educational projects about National Socialism

The inflammatory slogans of hatred once again being spread on a large scale today by right-wing populists and right-wing extremists bear a shocking resemblance to Nazi propaganda. The extreme Right’s xenophobia, anti-Semitism and obliviousness to history are now penetrating mainstream society. It is the task of the Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism to educate the public about the Nazi era and to make clear where the inhuman ideology of the Right has its roots.

From 2018 onwards the Documentation Centre will award a prize for outstanding publications, activities or projects that make a major contribution to educating the public about National Socialism, about the crimes of the Nazi regime and about the consequences and continuing impact of the Nazi era. The prize, worth 8,000 euros, will be awarded every two years.

In selecting the projects the jury will be looking for high-quality contributions with a broad social impact that are both in tune with the times and oriented towards the future. A jury of experts from German-speaking countries and honorary members of the City Council will propose national and international publications and projects for discussion and then recommend a candidate to receive the prize. The final decision about the selection of the winner will be taken by the City Council.
