Lecture Tour to the Midwest region of the United States from October 18 to October 31, 2018

News About the Upcoming Lecture Tour

What can you expect to hear in my lectures?

I will talk about the daily life in the Grand Duchy of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, the climatic peculiarities, traditions, and much more.

You will find out why from 1840 to 1900 between 10-50% of the inhabitants emigrated from some of the towns. How did people prepare for emigration at that time? How did people travel from Thuringia to the port cities of Bremerhaven and Hamburg? You will learn interesting facts about the crossing and the journey onward in America. I will report on the lives of immigrants in their new American homeland.

If I have piqued your interest on this topic "Emigration in the 19th Century,” then please come to one of my events and support this Crowdfunding project. Dates and places of the upcoming events are published under the title "Events" on this website.
