Citizen Award of the Denkmalstiftung Baden-Württemberg

There are more than 90.000 cultural monuments in Baden-Württemberg and the Denkmalstiftung Baden-Württemberg in Stuttgart supports many of them. So we were extremely surprised when we heard that our association was short-listed for the Citizen Award 2019 of the Denkmalstiftung. Someone who values our work highly seems to have suggested us.

By now we have actually been informed that we really have won this prize.

 

The letter by the Denkmalstiftung says:

Damit würdigt die Stiftung Ihren vorbildlichen Einsatz für den Erhalt und die Restaurierung der alten Synagoge Sinsheim-Steinsfurt als Denkmal jüdischen Lebens. Beispielhaft haben Sie darüber hinaus mit Schulen sowie den Städten und Gemeinden in der Region mit Ausstellungen, Vorträgen, Lesungen und Konzertverstanstaltungen ein öffentliches Bewusstsein für die jüdische Vergangenheit im Kraichgau geschaffen.   By this the Foundation values your exemplary commitment for the preservation and restoration of the old Synagogue in Sinsheim-Steinsfurt as a monument of Jewish Life. Moreover, by organizing exhibitions, lectures, readings and concerts you have in an exemplary way cooperated with schools, towns and communities in the region to create a public awareness of the Jewish past in the Kraichgau.

 

The award is endowed with 5.000 €.

The money is a great help with the final stages of the restauration of the synagogue and with other projects we have planned.
