Giordano Wins Prestigious Baeck Literary Prize

Ralph Giordano, the German writer and journalist, has been awarded the 2003 Leo Baeck Prize by the Central Council of Jews in Germany. The organization awarded Giordano the €10,000 prize for his writings on the contemporary threat of right-wing extremism and his work in keeping the Holocaust in the public consciousness, according to a statement released by the Central Council on Wednesday. The award is named after the rabbi Leo Baeck, a concentration camp survivor who was a leading member of Germany’s Jewish community during the first half of the 20th century.
