In the lecture room center of the university, members of the Amerika in Augsburg e.V. Society participated in a discourse of first-hand witnesses that should remind of the American military presence in the Lech metropolis. This was part of a students’ workshop with presentations about the multi-cultural societies in Canada and USA as well as the U.S. presence in Augsburg.

Tribble, Dr. Christian Ruck and Ms. Claudia Roth (both Members of Parliament), as well as Augsburg University’s Prof. Dr. Philipp Gassert (Chair of European-Transatlantic History) and Prof. Dr. Hubert Zapf (Chair of Americana).
