Obermayer awards: Six Germans honored

The Obermayer German Jewish History Awards, funded by Boston philanthropist, are in their ninth year.
The awards recognize non-Jewish Germans' efforts to keep alive their nation's Jewish cultural past, and the recipients are nominated by Jews living outside of Germany.
The awards were presented January 27, at Abgeordnetenhaus, home of the Berlin Parliament.
