The "Lars Day Prize – Future of Remembrance," endowed with 5,000 euros, was awarded for the second time this year at the W. Michael Blumenthal Academy, Jewish Museum Berlin. The Lars Day Foundation’s prize honors educational projects and initiatives that remember Nazi crimes and other crimes against humanity that encourage young people to take responsibility for democracy and living together in diversity.

This year, the prize went to Amaro Drom e.V., an intercultural youth organization run by Roma and non-Roma from Berlin. In memory of the genocide of the European Sinti and Roma, they organize the annual youth meeting Dikh angle! Looking Forward! as part of the Amaro Drom project Dikhen amen! .
Exploring their own family and persecution history enables young Sinti and Roma from all over Germany to gain a better understanding of current racism and to develop empowerment strategies. Their commitment contributes to transforming remembrance cultures in a pluralistic society.
The slam poet Fatima Moumouni (Switzerland) led us through the evening and Yasemin Shooman, director of academy programs at the Jewish Museum Berlin, held the laudatory address.
