The highest German prizes for historical preservation will be awarded in Leipzig on Wednesday, honouring institutions and individuals for their work to save the country's jewels from the past.

The ten awards for engagement, daring projects, perseverance and rescue of old documents will kick off a “preservation trade show” at the old city hall in the morning.

Head of the national committee for historical preservation Eva-Maria Stange will present the awards, which are the country's highest honour for such work. She will replace German President Horst Köhler, who cancelled his appearance.
