Hermann Kesten-Awards 2016

The Translate for Justice team received the Hermann Kesten Incentive Award 2016 by the German PEN Center. The awards ceremony took place on November 17th at the Staatstheater Darmstadt, Germany. The Turkish journalists Can Dündar and Erdem Gül were awarded this year’s Hermann Kesten Medal.

The laudatio of Can Dündar und Erdem Gül was held by the former “Tagesthemen” host Thomas Roth; the lyricist and translator Hans Thill gave the laudatio for Translate for Justice. We feel very honoured.

Here are some impressions of this inspiring evening.
