This month, Germany kicks off Wunderbar Together, a major, year-long initiative to celebrate the Year of German-American Friendship (“Deutschlandjahr USA”).
An initiative of the German Federal Foreign Office, implemented by the Goethe-Institut, and with support from the Federation of German Industries (BDI), Wunderbar Together will showcase the transatlantic partnership, highlighting areas of German-American cooperation in business, industry, politics, education, culture, science, civil society, and sports and lifestyle. This initiative culminates in fall 2019 with the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
To mark this kick-off, the Diplomacy Center, the Diplomacy Center Foundation, and the German Embassy are hosting a panel discussion on U.S.-German relations, followed by a reception. The panel includes Dr. Steven S. Sokol, President of the American Council on Germany, German Ambassador Emily Haber, and former U.S. ambassador to Germany Robert M Kimmitt.
The Diplomacy Center will feature its segment of the Berlin Wall that bears the signatures of world leaders who worked to end the Cold War.
