Call for applications: Simon-Wiesenthal-Prize

The Simon Wiesenthal Prize is awarded annually up as a distinction for their special civil society commitment to combating antisemitism and raising awareness about the Holocaust.

The prize is intended to honour the memory of the architect, publicist and writer Simon Wiesenthal, who fought tirelessly throughout his life against indifference to the crimes of National Socialism. The aim of the work of the potential award winners is to communicate actively, strengthen and disseminate knowledge about the Holocaust, increase understanding in society of the mechanisms and consequences of antisemitism, and raise awareness about the contemporary dangers of antisemitism.

Individuals and/or groups of individuals or initiatives from Austria and abroad can be nominated or apply via the website www.wiesenthalpreis.at by uploading the application documents. The deadline for applications is September 30th. Detailed information on the prize, the conditions of participation and the application form are available under the link.
