Prize »Geisteswissenschaften International« for Alexander Korb's Book
Alexander Korb’s historical study »Im Schatten des Weltkriegs« (In the Shadow of World War) is the recipient of the Geisteswissenschaften International Prize this fall. Published this spring by Hamburger Edition, the book has already won numerous awards, including the Fraenkel Prize of the Wiener Library, London.
The prize is a special award within the context of the program »Geisteswissenschaften International«.
Among the other books selected by the jury to be honored in this round is a further Hamburger Edition publication, Gerhard Wolfs »Ideologie und Herrschaftsrationalität. Nationalsozialistische Germanisierungspolitik in Polen«.
Both books will receive complete translation funding to facilitate publication in English. The program promotes the international dissemination of outstanding books from the humanities and social sciences originally published in German.
