Thanksgiving Dinner 2021

Even though Christmas is just around the corner, we still wanted to share some photos from our Thanksgiving Dinner this year, organized by the Carl-Schurz Deutsch-Amerikanischer Club!

Every year, the Carl-Schurz DAC hosts a traditional American Thanksgiving Dinner here in Bremen – this year we got to enjoy our dinner at the Maritim Hotel.

It was a lovely evening filled with yummy food, good music, challenging trivia quizzes and nice conversations.

Thanks again @ CSDAC for inviting us!

But now the Dickinson-in-Bremen team wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Hapy New Year – see you in 2022!

Christian Wulff Speech

On November 15th, 2021, Brendan Harlan ’22 and Dr. Janine Ludwig had the opportunity to attend a speech by Christian Wulff, the 10th President of the Federal Republic of Germany (2010-2012), on the topic “Streitunkultur als Gefahr für die Demokratie” (Discussion non-culture as a danger to the democracy). The event was organized by the political foundation Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Bremen.

The talk was followed by a panel discussion in which, among other things, it was explained to what extent argument culture has changed in recent years. Afterwards, Dr. Ludwig and Brendan had the chance to briefly talk to Christian Wulff himself.

Going to a Werder Bremen Game

by Brendan Harlan ’22

A while ago, before the COVID numbers were spiking, I was lucky enough to see a Werder Bremen soccer match.

Going to a Werder Bremen game was on my bucket list of things to do while in Bremen and I’m incredibly glad that I got the opportunity to see Werder play. Words cannot describe how crazy experiencing a Werder game was for me. I’ve been to Red Sox – Yankees games before, where there’s a certain level of excitement and tension amongst the fans, but the atmosphere at Weserstadion and the experience of being amongst diehard Fußball fans was incomparable.
