The Helena Vaz da Silva European Award for Raising Public Awareness on Cultural Heritage 2014 granted a Special Mention to Pieter Steinz for his book Made in Europe. “When I think of Europe, I think of shared culture, from Dublin to Lesbos and St. Petersburg to Lisbon: literature and art that transcends borders,” stated Pieter Steinz in a special message at the official ceremony held at the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon on 3 October. Steinz, who suffers from ALS disease, was represented by his daughter Jet Steinz.
