Dr Katarzyna Person among the winners of the prestigious Dan David Prize!

We are tremendously honoured to share that Dr Katarzyna Person, deputy director of the Warsaw Ghetto Museum, has been awarded the Dan David Prize.

The winners were selected after nominations from colleagues, institutions and the general public were submitted in an open nomination process and were chosen by a global committee of experts that changes annually.

The Dan David Prize, endowed by the Dan David Foundation and headquartered at Tel Aviv Universit, is one of the most prestigious  history awards in the world. It was first established in 2001 by the late entrepreneur and philanthropist Dan David, to reward innovative and interdisciplinary work that contributed to humanity. In 2021, the Prize was relaunched with a focus on historical research, honoring the founder’s passion for history and archaeology. It now rewards early and mid career scholars to help them fulfill their potential at a time when support for the humanities is dwindling. Each of the winners  will receive $300,000 (USD) in recognition of their achievements and to support their future endeavors.
