German Memories in Asia is a collection of memories by the author Rajkumar Kanagasingam, in his association with the German university students, who have been volunteering in Asia under an internship program.
 
German Memories in Asia narrates the fascinating early human migration from Africa to the rest of the world and the sensitive issues of Asian and European historical events, especially the German, since the Roman Empire era and about the Germans in Latin America, North America, East European countries and elsewhere in the world and their migrations, life styles, encounters and assimilations since ancient times.
 
It analyses the First and Second World War issues of Dresden Bombing, German POW crisis and more.
 
It explores the author's encounters in his early days in the war-ravaged Jaffna Peninsula in the northern part of the Indian Ocean 's war-torn island and then as an officer in an American NGO in the jungles under the control of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and then in a tsunami relief mission there with German students.
The book is a memorable testimony for German students' life and fashion in Asia at their residency at the Aquarius Resorts in Marawila, a sleepy western coastal town of Sri Lanka facing the scenic Indian Ocean!
