The History of Us - German Series: From Neanderthal to Karl der Grosse
Do you have an interest in German History, understanding the politics and wars behind the building of a nation, or are you a German American interested in learning more about your roots or ancestry? Come join us at the DANK Haus for a series of classes that will look at Germany's history through the analysis of language, wars, and politics. As well, these topics will shine upon the German World and Culture today.
Not just a lecture, attendees will engage in hands on activities to discover their own German connection.
Though not offered as an accredited college level course for degree seeking college or grad students, this experience should simply provide an opportunity for laypersons to broaden their general knowledge and basic understanding of the very foundations of Western European civilization
This event will take place at the German American Cultural Center at DANK Haus which is situated in Lincoln Square, a historically German neighborhood. The class will begin September 2 2015 and will take place every Wednesday evening starting at 7:00 pm and running until 9:00 pm for 16 weeks.
There is a fee of $200 with all materials included. Our Moderator is Mike Haas, who holds a Master in History from DePaul University and writes for several publications.
