Chapter 5: Good Work (das Arbeit)

Old World traditions, New World adaptations. In this chapter, we take a look at the working German—agriculture, viticulture, brewing beer, building, creating—and the legacy today.

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.
