About the Theodor Heuss Prize
The Theodor Heuss prize and medals are given annually to people and organizations that are models of democratic behavior.
The Theodor Heuss Foundation is named for Germany's first president, who served 1949-1959, as a reminder of Heuss's committment to moral courage and democracy. The foundation seeks "to bring attention to something, which has to be done and shaped in our democracy, without being finished" (Carl Friedrich v. Weizsäcker, 1965).
