With the Gustav Heinrich Ralph von Koenigswald Lecture, Senckenberg honors the founder of its paleoanthropology department, who discovered over a hundred hominid fossils with his colleagues on the island of Java in the first half of the 20th century. Thanks to the Werner Reimers Foundation, Bad Homburg, the “G.H.R. von Koenigswald” collection has been housed at the Senckenberg Research Institute and Nature Museum Frankfurt since 1968, where it continues to contribute to the scientific reputation of the museum to this day.
