In 2014 we remember several historic anniversaries: The 100th anniversary of World War I, 75 years of World War II, 25 years since the Berlin Wall came down, and 10 years of eastward enlargement of the European Union. From March 10 to 28, 2014 the German Consulate General in Toronto proudly presents an exhibition at Toronto's Munk School for Global Affairs to commemorate these significant events.

The conference is organized by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, the Munk School of Global Affairs, the Joint Initiative in German and European Studies, and the German Consulate in Toronto and discusses Germany's current domestic politics, its position within Europe and its transatlantic relations.

University of Waterloo project seeks the untold stories of German immigration
Whether they arrived in the 1950s on a ship or a few years ago on a passenger plane, German immigrants to Canada still hold many untold stories in their families that risk being lost if they are not recorded. The Waterloo Centre for German Studies (WCGS) at the University of Waterloo (Ontario) is looking for people of German descent—or their children—who would like to share their experiences.
