German-American-Multicultural Topics


The Flensburg Files also features a news project page, where a list of thematic categories are featured so that you can have a look at and comment on some of the articles written by the author. While some of the themes are based on what was mentioned in the mainstream news media but some aspects are being added, but also there are some that are rarely covered at all but are important, especially for those who want to know how these themes affect expatriates as well as German-American relations, just to name a few. Some of the projects currently being covered by the Files outside tourism and English include:

2017: THE YEAR OF MARTIN LUTHER AND THE 95 THESES- A separate page on this topic can be found here.
