Dear Friends of Let's talk about Germany, 

Germany 2020 -- a year full of Music, History, Culture, Politics -- and Beer! 

From Ludwig van Beethoven's 250th birthday to the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, the 30th anniversary of the German Unification and - not to forget- the centennial of the American Prohibition -- this year is chock full of seminal events! 

I am excited to be able to tell you, my cherished audiences, all about the stories, events, and personalities that shaped the history and culture of my home country. This year promises to become thrilling and so much fun: I will be lecturing in Florida again in February and in November; I will once again be a part of the JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival in March and all in all there will be over 100 speaking engagements waiting for me (and you!) in this first year of our new decade! 

As many of you know, I am currently offering more  than 30 different topics, all pertaining to Germany's culture, history, politics, and society. 

Here is a list of 2020's most timely and relevant ones:  (you can also find my current lecture flyer by clicking: here!)
