the official opening of our latest exhibit
Unter unser Leit: Finding Kansas’s Volga-Germans.
on Tuesday, January 31st, 2017
at: GAHM, 719 6th St., NW
Washington, DC 20001
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.
GAHF Board member Aaron Lewis will moderate the evening. Light refreshments will be served.
