German History Day
Discover fascinating stories of Brisbane’s German roots at the historic Brisbane German Club (thank you to our venue host). Selected speakers and historians will unveil facts about German influences on Queensland’s life.
The third German History Day will continue the series of events dedicated to gaining a better understanding of essential developments in the German history with a focus on their impact at the intersection of Australian developments.
The day will be moderated by Dr Heidi Kneebone. Heidi has been learning and teaching German language and culture for over 30 years, with senior, and middle school students, and in continuing and tertiary education. Topics covered are the legacy of Ludwig Leichhard and his exploration through Queensland, the GDR-Australia Relationship and the escape story of Günter Wetzel in a hot air balloon (via video conference).
