The Foreign Ministry has handed out its annual Gratias Agit Awards to Czech expats and foreigners for promoting the good name of the Czech Republic abroad. Among this year’s recipients were eight personalities and one organization, including writer and Holocaust survivor Eva Erbenová and Jana Sommerlad, a translator and editor for the British organisation The Friends of Czech Heritage.

The Gratias Agit Awards for 2023 were handed out by Foreign Minister Jan Lipavský on Thursday at a ceremony traditionally held in the Great Hall of Czernin Palace. They went to personalities who have made their mark in the fields of science, literature, art and culture and non-governmental aid organizations.
