Join The Hans Albrecht Foundation (HAF) and The Wiener Holocaust Library for the HAF Human Rights Award and annual lecture. This year’s recipient is the Kent Refugee Action Network (KRAN). The team at KRAN works with separated young refugees and asylum seekers also known as UASC’s (unaccompanied asylum seeking and refugee minors). These are young people aged 16 to 24 who have arrived in Kent alone and are claiming asylum and KRAN provide them with a safe, positive space supporting them to succeed through a range of services and pathways.

For 2022, the HAF Annual Lecture will be given by award-winning journalist and author Daniel Trilling on the theme of ‘refugees in Europe then and now’. His latest book, Lights in the Distance: Exile and Refuge at the Borders of Europe, won Italy’s inaugural Libri contro la Fame (“Books against Hunger”) literary prize and was shortlisted for the 2019 Bread and Roses Award for Radical Publishing. Trilling is also currently a regular contributor to The Guardian’s Long Read and Opinion sections and writes for the London Review of Books, among other publications.

Hans Albrecht came to Britain on the Kindertransport. The Hans Albrecht Foundation (HAF) strives to advance and promote human rights particularly in relation to children, equalities, disability, children who are refugees and/or fleeing conflict and freedom from persecution on the grounds of race, ethnicity and faith.
