Would you like to find out more about the History of the German Society of Montreal?
... then take a look at Karin Gürttler's book about the History of the German Society from 1835 to 1985. In addition to the German version, a French translation is now accessible on the Society's website. Produced by Professor Manuel Meune and a team of students from the Université de Montréal, it will reach a much wider audience than before.
It is fascinating to see how the tradition of helping recently arrived German immigrants in the 19th century has evolved into the support of German cultural institutions in Montreal (e.g. German language schools, German churches) as well as other charitable organizations in the Greater Montreal area (hospitals, shelters for the homeless, etc.) in the following centuries.
