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.
