A German-Turkish lawyer, who represented families of the Turkish victims killed by the NSU, a neo-Nazi terror group, was awarded the "Ludwig Beck Award for Civil Courage" on July 2.
Seda Başay-Yıldız, a prominent lawyer at Frankfurt Bar Association, received the award from the mayor of Wiesbaden, the state capital of Hesse, Germany.
Nicknamed the "forbidden survey", it was crowdfunded by civic initiative 50dni.sk. (Meaning "50days", the name is a cheeky reference to a government proposal late last year to introduce a 50-day moratorium on polls, which was scuppered by the constitutional court.)

The European Parliament has penalized a Greek neo-Nazi lawmaker who tore up a paper copy of the Turkish flag during a debate in the Brussels-based assembly last month.
Yiannis Lagos, an independent MEP, was on Tuesday ordered to pay a fine of 2,261 euros, which was said to be the equivalent of his weekly paycheck.
He was also banned from the assembly for four days.
Turkey on Jan. 30 slammed Greek member of the European Parliament (EP) Ioannis Lagos for ripping a Turkish flag at the EP Plenary.
"These racist minds know better than anybody else how we broke the hands of and poured into the sea those who dare attack our glorious flag," Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said in a tweet.
Greece's Foreign Ministry condemned the actions of a neo-Nazi lawmaker who tore up a paper copy of the Turkish flag during a debate in the European Parliament on Wednesday evening.
Yannis Lagos is an independent MEP and leader of the National Popular Conscience, a splinter group that emerged after the disintegration of neo-Nazi Golden Dawn.
