2020 is the 250th anniversary year of the musical genius Ludwig van Beethoven. Please mark your calendars for a tribute concert on Wednesday, Dec. 16 from 6 – 7:30 pm EST.
Thank you to everybody who participated in and attended our very first virtual German-American Day celebration via Zoom. If you missed it, we are happy to provide you with a link to our YouTube channel, where you can watch the event in its entirety.
Since our founding, German-Americans have been central to our progress as a Nation. Industrious and faithful early German immigrants came to our shores to fulfill dreams of economic opportunity and to live out their faith free from government interference.
Please join us for a virtual Zoom discussion on the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment with a special emphasis on German-American suffragettes and the perception and impact of women’s suffrage in the German-American community.
The board members and staff of the German-American Heritage Foundation and Museum wish you all a very happy 4th of July!
Dear Members and Friends,
On Monday, June 22, Washington, D.C. entered phase 2 of the gradual reopening, which allows non-essential businesses to provide expanded services with capacity limits. As you know, our museum temporarily closed in mid-March in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
