Yoko Ono Awarded Germany’s Highest Human Rights Medal

Yoko Ono has accepted the German human rights prize for peace activism, the Rainer Hildebrandt Medal at Berlin’s Checkpoint Charlie Museum. The museum is situated next to the Cold War border crossing which was an iconic symbol of political suppression. The lifetime achievement award was given for her recent work highlighting equality for women and LGBT issues, as well as for the work she created with her late husband, John Lennon. Ono, who is 80 in February, flashed a peace sign as she thanked the jury. “I’m very honoured to get this award and I will consider this award as an encouragement to do more work in humanitarian causes,” she stated.
The Dr. Rainer Hildebrandt Medal is an international human rights award set up by Alexandra Hildebrandt in 2004 to commemorate the 90th birthday of her late husband, Dr. Rainer Hildebrandt, the founder of the Mauermuseum – Museum Haus am Checkpoint Charlie. The award is given annually in recognition of extraordinary, non-violent commitment to human rights and is conferred on the birthday of Dr. Rainer Hildebrandt (* 14.12.1914 – † 09.01.2004) to mark International Human Rights Day.
