Work and Mission of the Amerikahaus München
The Amerikahaus München is the central institution for transatlantic themes and issues in Bavaria. Since the beginning in 1956, the Amerikahaus has fostered the relationship between Bavaria and North America. We organize events such lectures, panel discussions, author readings, exhibitions, concerts, theater plays, conferences and summer academies. We advise and support high school and college students when planning to go to the US or Canada and provide numerous digital information resources for students and teachers working on the US and Canada. In my talk I will also highlight the long history of the Amerikahaus in supporting democratization processes in Bavaria and its role in reeducation and providing information for the public directly after WW II. Finally, I will indicate its mission and future after the prestigious renovation in the next years.

From member Sue Pope:
It was with great regret that we announce the death of Dorothea Allinson.
Dorothea arrived in Munich in November 1997. Having already lived in Brussels and The Hague, she knew what she was looking for, and soon became a member of the Club. Dorothea came across as a quiet woman – but in fact she had a brilliant sense of humour, and was interested in many things. She was a member of the Needlers group and the Book club, although as a dyslexic, she much preferred shorter books. With her husband’s retirement looming, in May 2011, she started her move back to England. She regretted leaving Munich, but was very happy to be nearer her growing family. While in Munich she started having heart problems. In September 2014, Dorothea had an operation on her heart, from which she didn’t fully recover, and on 26th January, Dorothea passed away, with her family at her bedside. Dorothea was a great friend, and will be missed by all who knew her.
New to Munich with time on your hands? Interested in giving back to your community? Looking to meet new people? Dozens of organizations presented information on volunteer opportunities at a volunteer fair at the Gasteig recently. Some organizations can use non-German speaking volunteers and many, many more would like you to have a good command of the German language. If you are interested in volunteering on either an occasional basis or a regular basis, you may indeed find an organization here that matches your interests. Continue reading
