The date for the awarding of the Benedict Prize has to be postponed again. The award ceremony for the artist and initiator of the Stolpersteine, Gunter Demnig, was supposed to take place in spring 2020, but was postponed to 16 April this year. Due to the current pandemic situation and the associated regulations for events, this date must now also be cancelled. The Benedict Prize will therefore not be awarded to Demnig until 2022. The laudatory speech was to be given by the Minister President of North Rhine-Westphalia, Armin Laschet.
