Dignity is all

Dignity is something we don’t think much about. We assume that it is something that comes with being human, even though we know from thousands of examples in history that dignity is also something that can be lost pretty damn quickly.

This website aims to uphold the value of dignity and remind us that we must constantly rethink and evaluate dignity. Do we live with dignity, are we treated with dignity, do we treat others and ourselves with dignity?

The 1st article of the German constitution says:

Die W├╝rde des Menschen ist unantastbar.

english: Human dignity is inviolable.

Is that really the case? Don’t we all know of cases in which people’s dignity has been trampled on? And precisely these are reason enough to talk and write about dignity from all possible perspectives, involving not only humanity but the entire planet.
