During the past two weeks, multiple regions of Western and Southern Germany have been severely affected by floods, which resulted in almost 200 deaths, and the complete destruction of homes and infrastructure.
As executive director of GAHF, I am often asked to provide an overview of Germany’s history. This is an understandable question considering that some 50 million Americans today claim German descent.
May your Christmas season be filled with peace and joy, and may the next year bring you and your families happiness and health.
On Saturday, Dec. 12, GAHF held its virtual annual meeting followed by the last Board of Directors meeting for 2020, which was also held via Zoom.
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.
