In anticipation of this week’s state visit of the Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany Angela Merkel, I would like to ask you to participate in a project to deepen the transatlantic relationship with German-speaking countries through culture and heritage.
The German-American Heritage Foundation of the USA® looks forward to an exciting spring. We highly anticipate the opening of the latest exhibit at the GAHM, on loan from the Historic Zoar Village, which opens Friday, March 24th. The Historic Zoar Village exhibit documents a group of German immigrants who established their own community in Ohio in 1817 on the principles of pacifism and communalism. The official opening reception will be on Thursday, March 30th.
Unter unser Leit provides the visitor the unique opportunity to learn about a somewhat unfamiliar yet fascinating cultural group: the Volga-Germans. The exhibit provides an exploratory, ethnographic account of an American immigrant group following their journey from German lands to the banks of the Volga River in 18th-century Russia, and then to the Kansas prairie a hundred years later. The conscientious visitor will draw parallels between the Volga-Germans’ fascinating history and the stories of other American immigrant groups. This exhibit was researched by Rose Guardino and researched and curated by Tyler Grasee. This exhibit will open Friday, January 20th.
Interns will work on event planning, research, and cross-cultural planning. Internship responsibilities include: – assistance in fundraising and member management – management and operations of a museum – communications, web and social media We ask that interns be able to dedicate three days a week for three months. Please send résumé, cover letter, and three-page writing sample (in English or German) to info@gahmusa.org.
