German Immigrants in the Chicago Area
GRIN Verlag, Mar 1, 2011 - 60 pages
Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 2,3, University of Frankfurt (Main), language: English, abstract: The Germans are the largest ethnic group in the United States and especially in Chicago. Peculiarly, their influence seems to have vanished. Every other ethnic group left stronger traces of their existence than the Germans. I decided to take a look at the development of the German- American community or in fact to pursue the question as to whether there is a German- American identity.
