David Herzog Fonds

David Herzog Fund

In 1988 the David Herzog Fund was established in remembrance of the persecution of Jewish scientists by the National Socialists and with the aim of making a lasting contribution to the promotion of tolerance and understanding. The fund was named after the late Graz rabbi and university instructor. Since then, the David Herzog Fund has awarded scholarships to promote and support intercultural understanding and learning, especially in relation to Jewish culture.
