Awards for the Project and its contributors

In January 2016, we were delighted about a special reinforcement of our work. The project Vacation From War was awarded the Hermann Maas Prize of the Protestant Church in Heidelberg in „Recognition its achievements in Promotion of International Understanding“. The award was presented by Regional Bishop Jochen Cornelius-Bundschuh and Dean Marlene Schwöbel-Hug.
