Chapter 3: “O Brave New World” (die Auswanderung)

Join us as we discuss Gottfried Duden and the first waves of German immigration into Missouri. We’ll also discuss some of the first German settlements in Missouri and other significant historic sites. Special guest: Cathie Schoppenhorst.

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.
