Highland German Society
Programme for 2023/24

Here is the programme for the year.


4th October 2023: a round-table session about our reminiscences of childhood.  Bring your stories and some photos!

1st November: Gisela Cumming will present a talk entitled "The Yalta Conference of 1945 and How it Affected the German Population".  As we know, the Conference re-drew the national borders of much of Eastern Europe, displaced a lot of people and a lot of German place-names and history was lost.  Gisela will describe what happened with special reference to her own family;

6th December:  Weihnachtsfeier, our celebration of Christmas in the German style;

10th January 2024: Hagen Wagner will talk about his interest in comic art from the DDR.  There was a lively industry producing comics for children and adults, many produced in people’s homes and so in very limited quantities.

7th February:  James Ross (clarinet) and Gordon Tocher (keyboard) will play a selection of pieces with a connection to Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

6th March:  "Long-distance Travel by Airship".  Neil Campbell will talk to us on this theme, a mode of transport in which Germany was a leading pioneer;

10th April: AGM. 

Any enquiries in the meantime, please contact the Secretary.  


Richard Baxter (secretary)
