1999 marks an important year in German history: the 10th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Federal Republic of Germany, the 60th anniversary of the beginning of WW II, the 61st anniversary of Reichskristallnacht, Goethe's 250th birthday, and the 750th anniversary of the city of Weimar, the birthplace of the Weimar Republic.

The Maryland Chapter of the AATG and the Department of Foreign Languages at Western Maryland College invite you, your students, and anyone who is interested to celebrate this year's German-American Day on Tuesday, October 12, 1999. This year's theme will be "A Salute to Germany '99". The main attraction will be the unveiling of a "portable" replica of the Berlin Wall. Participating students will paint the West side with various motifs from German history.
