Hans Frankenthal Award 2011

On Thursday, October 20th, the Stiftung Auschwitz-Komitee (loosely translated: Auschwitz-Comittee Foundation) celebrated the annual Hans Frankenthal Award. Amongst two other laureates (Wolfram P. Kastner, „Antifaschistische Erholungs- und Begegnungsstätte Heideruh e.V.“), Ultrà Sankt Pauli was awarded for contributions to the Alerta Network. In addition to trophy money, we also received a bunch of flowers, which we laid down at the grave of the communist resistance fighter Fritz Bringmann the next day.

We want to thank the Auschwitz-Comittee Foundation cordially for the appreciation of our work!
