Daniel Cohn-Bendit was born in 1945 in the French town Montauban. He became publicly known in May 1968 as the spokesman for the Paris student protest movement. After being expelled from France, Cohn-Bendit became involved in the Frankfurt “Sponti” scene, published the city magazine “Pflasterstrand” and has belonged to the “Realo” wing of the German Green Party since the 1980s. From 1989 to 1997, he headed the first, newly-established Office for Multicultural Affairs. He has been a Member of the European Parliament from 1994 to 2014, standing as a candidate alternately in Germany and France, achieving top results in both countries for the Greens. He most recently released Für Europa. Ein Manifest (2012; tr. For Europe. A Manifesto.) with Guy Verhofstadt. Cohn-Bendit has received the Hannah Arendt Prize (2001) and the Theodor Heuss Prize (2013).
