There are numerous dialects of German spoken throughout German-speaking countries, and even within a variety, there can be several other subcategories – not to mention, the languages across the globe which are derived from German and considered to be Germanic. Our Germanic Language & Dialect Series will present derivatives of the standard variety also known as “Hochdeutsch” and highlight Germanic languages. Native speakers and language experts will provide background information, historical context, and numerous examples. It will be a fun, interactive afternoon as each session will explore a new dialect of German or Germanic language.

Join us Sunday, November 8 via Zoom to learn about the Germanic language spoken by the Jewish community around the world: Yiddish! For this event, we're thrilled to be partnering with The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum in Atlanta. You can learn more about the museum and its programming on its website: https://www.thebreman.org/.

Exhibitions

  • Seeking Justice : The Leo Frank Case Revisited

    Even after 100 years the events surrounding the murder of Mary Phagan and the trial and lynching of Leo Frank remain both disturbing and morbidly fascinating. Seeking Justice allows visitors to look at the momentous and tragic events of the years 1913-1915 through the lens of the societal and political tensions that existed in Atlanta at that time. The full exhibition provides an immersive experience for visitors, while an artifact only display for smaller spaces conveys this story's significance in a more condensed manner.

  • Absence of Humanity : The Holocaust Years, 1933-1945
