Visit the "Lost German Chicago" exhibit! The exhibition features art, artifacts and memorabilia from within Chicago’s German American community. The items record what has been lost in the Chicago German community while archiving and preserving that which has been entrusted to DANK.
Cultural education is key to connecting to the past and broadening our future. Education connects us to communities and individuals throughout the world. The acquisition of language helps us to communicate with a new friend, cultural traditions help us connect with our family, and lessons from history help to inform our future. We succeed because of your support. Together, we are continuing to educate our community in German language, culture, and history.
