Second Leon Zelman Prize went to the school community of G19
Vienna's city councilman for culture Andreas Mailath-Pokorny presented the Leon Zelman Prize for dialog and understanding to the school community of G19 on June 12: "I was deeply touched by the intensive and longstanding effort of the school community of Federal Grammar School 19. I am also delighted that a worthy prize exists for awarding this extremely important work rendered in the service of remembrance."
