Berlin, Germany —January 13, 2021 — Germans who have raised awareness of once-vibrant Jewish communities and used the lessons of the Nazi era to fight prejudice and counter the far right will receive 2021 Obermayer Awards. The awards will be presented on January 25, 2021 at the Abgeordnetenhaus, the home of the Berlin Parliament. The ceremony is the Parliament’s main formal commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
