Tom Schwartz, a retired teacher of German and longtime contributor to the Association of Lifelong Learners, will present German Immigration from 1683 to the Present.”    

Nearly 40% of Americans share some German ancestry.  Germans have come to the Americas in several distinct waves both pushed by conditions in Germany and pulled by the perceived opportunities in the Americas, especially the United States.  Tom is an aficionado of this history and has accumulated copies of posters that have been used by various American companies and other organizations to attract German emigrants to the United States.  These posters will also be a part of his presentation.  

The Association of Lifelong Learners (ALL) is a group of retirees and community members interested in continuing to learn and engage with each other on a variety of educational topics. If you're not already a member, feel free to attend a meeting or two to see what we're about before making the commitment.
