Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka on Thursday presented Holocaust survivor George Brady with the Karel Kramář medal. The prime minister said the award was recognition of Czech-born Brady’s lifetime work promoting freedom, democracy, and human rights. Referring to the recent scandal over whether presidential officials threatened to withdraw an earlier promised state award to Brady because his nephew, culture minister Daniel Herman met with the Dalai Lama, Sobotka said it was unfortunate and that figures such as Brady should be honoured. Brady survived the Czech collection camp at Terezín, where he was sent by the Nazis, and later the Auschwitz death camp. He later emigrated to Canada and devoted much of his life telling younger generations of his life story.
