POLITICAL AND SOCIAL INVOLVEMENT
In Latin America, Elisabeth Käsemann campaigned in various ways for the improvement of living conditions of the destitute population. She participated in literacy campaigns, organized support for families in need, assisted people subjected to political persecution to flee the country, and worked for political and Christian organizations. In a country where priests were being tortured and murdered for their Christian commitment, this kind of involvement was a death warrant. Her concept of Christian solidarity had led her to lose her life in exchange for a world with more social justice.
In 2012 a street in the Lustnau district of Tübingen was named after Elisabeth Käsemann.
Since 2012 Wildermuth High School graduates are presented with the Elisabeth Käsemann Award for outstanding social commitment.
