Chicago’s DANK Haus German-American Cultural Center is set to being an 8-week course, From Neantherdal Mann to Karl der Grosse, that will provide an in-depth look at Germany’s history through an analysis of the country’s language, wars and politics.

The free course, which begins February 5, starts off with a look at how the German culture began with the first settlers and follows the major battles for power in the country until the course wraps up with Germany’s impact on the rest of the world.

Attendees will get more than just a lecture, as there will be hands on engagement and activities geared towards discovering your own German connection.

The class, taught by Mike Haas, who holds a Master in History from DePaul University and writes for several publications, should provide an opportunity for students to walk away with a broadened general knowledge and basic understanding of the very foundations of Western European civilization.

Each class will take place every Thursday evening at the DANK Haus on 4740 N Western Ave in Chicago from 7pm to 9pm and wraps up on May 7th. The full course syllabus can be viewed online and more info can be found at the DANK Haus website.
