Germany's Jewish community awards a special prize to a citizens' group in the town of Lübtheen in eastern Germany for their effort to curb the influence of the far-right NPD party which set up a office in the town.
Earlier this month, Germany's states launched a new attempt to ban the far-right National Democratic Party (NPD). With the NPD now apparently riven by internal strife, might it disintegrate of its own accord?
The Spiegel Prize has been awarded to two civil initiatives that battle against anti-Semitism and intolerance. One of the programs is a citizens' initiative that fights against a right-wing political party in their city.
