Message from Ruediger Lentz, German American Heritage Museum

Opportunities for collaboration with the German American Heritage Museum:

1.  The “oral and visual history project":  German Americans of all ages tape and store their personal data and stories in a collective memory database.  Visit the Museum and tell your German-American story! 

2.  400 years of German immigration to America Timeline.  Visit the museum with your students to interact with the multi-media timeline in person  or oder the nicely edited booklet, which retells the Timeline in German and English.  Free of charge.
