The video book published in April 2017 about the life of Adenauer, was nominated for the German eBook Award. The jury justified their choice by saying “the creators” had demonstrated “their talent for a mix of media and didactic preparation” and that by “implementing this app” they had made Adenauer’s personality “tangible even for people who are not specialists in history”.
