Executive Director’s Message – March

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.

The GAHF also welcomes our newest staff member, Michael Heinen, who joins us as Director of Operations. Mr. Heinen has a background in finance and brings his expertise and interest in German-American culture to the GAHF.

We are also happy to announce the launch of our German-American Heritage Survey, a comprehensive project designed to document German-American sites all across the country.
