The undoped Lew Kopelew Prize for Peace and Human Rights is named after the Russian writer Lew Kopelew (1912–1997) and has been awarded at irregular intervals since 2001 by the Lew Kopelew Forum in Cologne . It is intended to honor “people, projects or organizations” “who are active in the spirit of Lew Kopelew”.
