What is German Club?
We are a group of Mount Holyoke students who are enthusiastic about the study of German language speaking cultures.
What does German Club do?
We helped organize a faculty/student German-Jewish dialogue group, trips to New York and Boston to German plays, lectures about contemporary Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the EU, and weekly film showings.
Our theater troupe, the “MHC German Players,” as the culmination of its work in German 211 (offered in the spring of 2010), stages an original one-act play in German at the annual German Theatre Festival and Competition (Deutsches Theaterfest), an event hosted each spring by Mount Holyoke College and attended by high school and college/university German theater groups from throughout the Northeast.
