Chapter 2: “Marking the Spirit of the Times” (die Zeitgeist)

Explore Missouri’s German Heritage Program Series: We dive right in with Alexander von Humboldt, Missouri Germans during times of war, and reflections upon cultural identity. Special Guest: Dr. Petra DeWitt.

Missouri Humanities has spent the last several years forming partnerships and developing programming dedicated to commemorating and interpreting Missouri’s rich German cultural heritage. In 2019, Missouri Humanities partnered with Missouri Life Publishing to create a “book-a-zine” exploring the many facets of “Germanness” in our state: Explore Missouri’s German Heritage. Authored by Dr. W. Arthur Mehrhoff, the publication serves as both a travel guide and coffee table book.
