Annually, with the thematical focus being set on a specific country or region, the highlight is the award of the Shalom prize, a prize labelled with one of the highest sums in Germany. The working group has been founded in 1981, displaying a continuous line of commitment. On a voluntary basis, a small group of students and citizens of Eichstätt contribute to the work. Currently, there are more than eight active members of the working group. If you are interested in what we do, you are welcome to join us!
