SPECIAL EXHIBIT AT THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM
IT IS A MUST SEE IN THIS CRITICAL PERIOD IN OUR COUNTRIES HISTORY
Dear friends of the Goethe-Institut,
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to an upcoming event at the Goethe-Institut Washington. On Friday, September 7th at 4:00 pm the Goethe-Institut Washington will be hosting its third annual Sommerfest!
This time we are celebrating fun and games – Spaß und Spiele – in as many ways as you can possibly imagine. Learn Fußball lingo in our survival German crash course and then challenge your new classmates to a foosball table showdown. Plus get a sneak preview of our new Intercultural Communication courses. Check out the different spaces in the Goethe-Institut for classic game favorites such as Cornhole and Settlers of Catan, or try your luck at a round of wacky new card games like Cognate Frenzy and Come On Over! Pretend you’re Serena Williams taking on Angelique Kerber in a match of table tennis, belt out your best Rammstein in our rockin’ Karaoke Cave, and listen to live music played by local DC bands:
—5:00-5:30 PM Swoll
—5:45-6:15 PM Blacklodge
—6:30-7:30 PM DJ Jahsonic
Old Europe Restaurant will be selling scrumptious German food and drinks, and Maracas Ice Pops will bring summer treats so your taste buds can also get in on the fun!
Since I've resettled in my new domicile at The Kennedy Warren Apartments, I hope to have more opportunity to occasionally list events. Certainly, I've already begun my Ranting and Raving blog since I have more than a few things I want to get off my chest in these critical times. I hope you'll take a look at
Did slaveholders actually enshrine human bondage in our founding documents at the birth of our nation as some historians have charged? In his new book, No Property in Man, political historian Sean Wilentz invites a fresh debate about the political and legal struggles over slavery that began during the Revolution and concluded with the defeat of the Confederacy at the end of the Civil War.

and remember that more free events can be found weekly at the following Internet locations
- Of course the most complete listing easily available to all in the D. C. community is THE CURRENT NEWSPAPER - It's distributed throughout the city on Thursday. Giving about 30 minutes to this each week would enable you to discover almost all the events I've culled for the listing for five or so years.
- Most government and cultural agencies have mailings and Internet listings of free events. They can easily be made available to you weekly and monthly. A list of just a few of those I have used are:
- NATIONAL ARCHIVES
- VARIOUS SMITHSONIAN MUSEUMS
- NATIONAL GALLERY OF ART
- POLITICS AND PROSE BOOKSTORE
- LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
- MANY EMBASSIES
- MANY LOCAL AND EVEN NATIONAL UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES
