EDUCATION

The AGP creates an information network connecting German-language educators to individuals and businesses in Alabama. These connections promote language-learning resources and more, including awareness of what Alabamians can learn from the German system of education and its focus on apprenticeships and skills-based training.

BUSINESS

The AGP supports business development between Alabama and Germany by encouraging direct investment, trade, and tourism. We serve as a facilitator between the two business cultures and foster awareness of the opportunities that Alabamians can find with German businesses and that German businesses can find here in Alabama.

CULTURE

The AGP bridges the gap between two cultures. Whether it’s celebrating Alabama’s German-cultural heritage or introducing German expats to a new lifestyle in Alabama, we work to build cultural awareness and understanding between cultures, including connections with cultural exchange programs.

ZOOM Webinar

In 2019-2020, Better Basics served nearly 22,000 students within the Central Alabama school districts! Their programs, which focus on underserved students in the Birmingham, Fairfield City, and Talladega County schools, touch more aspects in the child’s life than pure reading and math competencies. Students build confidence that impacts other areas of their lives. We will be joined by Dr. Kristi Bradford, Executive Director at Better Basics, as she tells us about the history of the 25-year-old organization, current and future plans/programs, impacts from the pandemic, and how motivated individuals can participate in their cause!

AGP International Holocaust Remembrance Day @ ZOOM Webinar
Feb 4 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us for recognition of International Holocaust Remembrance Day with our guest speaker Ann Mollengarden from the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center:

Thursday, February 4, 2021
6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Zoom Webinar

January 27th marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp. The United Nations General Assembly have designated this day as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, an annual day of commemoration to honor the victims of the Nazi era. The U.N. resolution that created International Holocaust Remembrance Day rejects denial of the Holocaust and condemns discrimination and violence based on religion or ethnicity.

Our guest speaker, Ann Mollengarden, has dedicated her life to educating others about the events of the Holocaust, and in particular, her father’s story as a Holocaust survivor. She has served as the Education Coordinator of the Birmingham Holocaust Education Center (BHEC) since its inception in 2002 and has traveled internationally to continue her studies.

Ann has compiled a 60-minute multi-media presentation, rich with historical detail and familial anecdotes that tells the story of Robert May and his family that lived in Camberg, Germany, just outside of Frankfurt.

Robert came from a Jewish family deeply entrenched in German culture. His relatives fought in the Franco-Prussian War and World War I. But when Hitler came to power and Robert was in the third grade, life abruptly changed. This is a story of the family. A family that stuck together and tried to endure. A family that was torn apart by the Nazi regime.

Don’t miss this important talk about Holocaust.

This presentation is kid/family-friendly.
