    Events in 2001: CHANNEL 56 PLEDGE NIGHT NEEDS YOU! March+Dec. 2001: GAHFI associates helped WTVS/56. Highlight: the Detroit premier broadcast of the PBS documentary "The German Americans" *incl. interviews with Germaine Strobel (wife of the late Eugene C. Strobel, GAHFI president), Gene's sister Margie, and Stephan Koller. GAHFI Pledge Session for PBS. (Photos and more Info)

    In 2001, GAHFI, the German American Heritage Foundation International, organized its sixth aand last annual Fall Conference, the German American Heritage Conference and Book Fair. As one of his last major projects, the late Gene Strobel was able to host authors Mort Crim & Hans Juergen Massaquoi. The theme of the Bookfair & Conference was "Detroit 300." In keeping with this theme, the city's best known and most respected TV news anchor (WDIV/4), Mort Crim, received the Foundation's Walter Reuter Award. Crim, whose original family name was Grimm, maintains his vast popularity with his nationally syndicated "Second Thoughts" broadcasts heard daily on WWJ radio, many best-selling books and twice-weekly Detroit Free Press column.

    Also honored at the event (Nov. 1-3) at Wayne State University was Hans Juergen Massaquoi Sr. of New Orleans, LA. Massaquoi' Destined to Witness: Growing Up Black in Nazi Germany is a best-selling book in the Federal Republic, and its English version received critical acclaim in the U.S.A. He received GAHFI's Carl Schurz Award. His son, Hans Juergen Jr., a downtown Detroit attorney, is active in the Foundation. He introduced his father and read from the book.

    Nov. 1-3 BOOKFAIR HONORED HEINZ PRECHTER: To further celebrate the Motor City's tricentennial, the activities and exhibits included an evening banquet. On that occasion, GAHFI also paid tribute to the late industrialist and civic leader, Heinz Prechter.

    The event on the campus of Wayne State University attracted over 300 high school and college students and faculty in addition to members of the general public.

    About GAHFI: Germans comprise one of the largest ethnic minorities in our country. The Organization called German American Heritage Foundation International or GAHFI for short has done a tremendous job highlighting positive images of German culture and achievement throughout the country and especially in our state and our southeast corner of it.



    Neues über Hans Massaquoi: Die Verfilmung seines autobiographischen Romans- "Eine besondere Jugend vor dem Hintergrund der Nazi-Diktatur in Hamburg behandelt der zweiteilige Spielfilm Neger, Neger, Schornsteinfeger (380.000 EUR, Aspekt Telefilm Produktion, Hamburg) nach dem gleichnamigen autobiographischen Roman von Hans-Jürgen Massaquoi. Die Rolle der Mutter wird Veronica Ferres übernehmen."

Modeled after the architectural styles of Finland, France, Germany, and Norway, the quaint enclaves of Concordia Language Villages provide the perfect meeting place for people of all ages."

    "Each village of Concordia Language Villages replicates a world culture." For example: "the Gasthof of Waldsee, the German Language Village.
