Egon Ranshofen-Wertheimer Award

The Egon Ranshofen-Wertheimer Award was founded (and is awarded) by the city of Braunau am Inn in cooperation with the Society for Contemporary History.

Named after the journalist, political scientist and diplomat Egon Ranshofen-Wertheimer, the price honors Austrians living abroad for an outstanding commitment to their home country Austria.

On September 29, 2007, the first award ceremony took place in the course of the 16th Braunau Contemporary History Days. Laudator was the embassador Emil Brix, head of the politico-cultural section of the Austrian Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
