|Establishment||This scholarship was established in 2006 by a legacy from the donor's maternal grandfather, Julius Flechtheim, a former professor of jurisprudence at Berlin University who died as a victim of the Holocaust in 1940. The legacy funding the scholarship was made available to Julius's grandson after the International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims in 2005 recognised the legitimacy of a life insurance policy taken out by Professor Flechtheim 70 years earlier. He was a contemporary of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who lectured on systematic theology at the same time and who was killed by the Nazis in 1945.
In their respective fields both men recognised in the upheaval of their country that true responsibility (both secular and temporal) means freedom and true freedom means responsibility.
The scholarship is offered in the hope that it will give fresh inspiration to all who are called to ask the awkward moral and ethical questions by encouraging study into the ethics of responsible action with particular reference to Bonhoeffer's theology.
