„I can neither be importunate nor servile. An honest man, so I believe, has no need of that.“ (Johann Philipp Palm to Georg Voß in Leipzig at 21 June 1806)
On Sunday, 26 August we´re memorizing the book dealer Johann Philipp Palm´s obit in 1806.
The biography of Johann Philipp Palm is an encouraging commitment to human rights. By awarding the Johann-Philipp-Palm-Award for Freedom of Speech and the Press we´re dedicating our work to this legacy: For Liberty against Violence.
