Thanksgiving Dinner

We are delighted to announce, that former US ambassador to Germany and current democratic Governor of New Jersey, Philip Murphy, also a Harvard club of Berlin Member, will provide us Thanksgiving greetings and as a keynote speaker, we are delighted to have Susan Neiman, author of “Learning from the Germans: Race and the Memory of Evil”, current Director of the Einstein Forum and also a Harvard Alumnus, who will provide us a thought-provoking talk on how Germans and Americans have reckoned with the past (or not).

This evening will not be a traditional frontal Webinar. Our Zoom capabilities will enable everyone to partake via Video and to participate with their own voice.

We will ensure the evening will have many moments of informal exchange while sharing a meal together, provide ample time for Q&A for Susan Neiman’s talk and close the evening with a “tour the table”: on the theme of gratitude we invite you to share what you are grateful for in these challenging times.

Register now - and reserve your meal until Thursday, November 18, 2020

As a special thanks for our members we will cover the costs of this Thanksgiving Dinner for 2 persons for 35 members. During this time we want to show solidarity and thank you, our loyal members, who have supported us so successfully for many years and with your contributions we as a club have been able to develop so many great projects. Therefore, we ask that those, who can well afford this amount, to pay for the dinner in full and for those who do not have such a large budget, we offer the dinner free of charge on a first come, first serve basis.
