Join us for an insightful lecture in English on June 14, 6 pm at the Congress Center Ramstein by the renowned historian Edward Lengel, Ph.D. What's often overlooked in our transatlantic discussions is that the first long-term encounters between Americans and Germans didn't occur in the course of the military occupation of Germany after WWII but rather already after WWI in 1918/19.
