German Language and the History of Emigration to North America 

Since the 19th century, seven million emigrants have undertaken the journey from the harbour in Bremerhaven, Germany to North America. This major pathway of emigration is the main focus of this summer program on the history of emigration and the role of Bremen and Bremerhaven. We will visit the German Emigration Center in Bremerhaven and learn more about the destiny of the emigrants in the last centuries. You will be able to track down your own family history or the destiny of other emigrants as a part of extended project work. Lecturers from different departments of the university will teach topics such as German history, history of emigration, integration, multicultural issues, and much more. In addition, we offer a rich cultural program, exploring Bremen and the vicinity. A trip to Germany‘s vibrant capital, Berlin, will round off the cultural experience of life and culture in modern-day Germany.
