Sara Berger Awarded Sybil Halpern Milton Book Prize 2015

Sara Berger (Fondazione Museo della Shoah, Rome) has been awarded the 2015 Sybil Halpern Milton Book Prize for »Experten der Vernichtung: Das T4-Reinhardt-Netzwerk in den Lagern Belzec, Sobibor und Treblinka«. The prize of the German Studies Association honors the best book published in a two-year period »dealing with Nazi Germany and the Holocaust.«

The prize committee’s laudation noted: »[Dr. Berger’s] book is a worthy successor to Henry Friedlander’s groundbreaking research where it highlights the complex imbrication of the murder of the disabled with the Shoah. […] Nearly every page is painfully evocative; where other books provide only few details she has compiled hundreds, all of which are presented with luminous eloquence and restraint.«

Robert Kindler's Book awarded Prize Geisteswissenschaften International

Robert Kindler's book »Stalins Nomaden. Herrschaft und Hunger in Kasachstan« (Stalin's Nomads:Soviet Power and the Famine in Kazakhstan) is one of two works awarded the Prize Geisteswissenschaften International this fall. The prize comes with complete translation funding to facilitate publication in English. The program, funded by the German Publishers and Booksellers Association, the German Federal Foreign Office, VG Wort, and the Fritz Thyssen Foundation, promotes the international dissemination of outstanding books from the humanities and social sciences.
The prize jury lauded Kindler for »retracing the processes in which Kazakhstan’s contemporary multiethnic society was formed and investigating historical occurrences with a potential for generating controversy that have not been addressed in Russia or Kazakhstan to date.«
