Paula Salomon-Lindberg (1897-2000), Charlotte Salomon's stepmother, was an internationally renowned alto in the 1930s. She fled from the National Socialists to Amsterdam with her husband in 1939, where both survived the war in hiding after internment at the Westerbork concentration camp. After the war Paula Salomon-Lindberg lived in the Netherlands; she worked there and in Salzburg, primarily as a voice teacher.

Since 1989, the international song competition founded by and named for the singer has been conducted every two years by the Berlin University of the Arts. The competition, which Paula Salomon-Lindberg attended actively until her death, is dedicated to both classical-romantic and modern art songs.

The concert of the prize winners is being held in cooperation with the Berlin University of the Arts.
