How much do you really know about Germans?
Why is going naked on a beach or in a public park in Germany okay and why are there restrictions here? Is the going naked movement gaining strength in Oregon and could Germany serve as a model? How do Germans deal with nudity and is there a difference between baring it in the eastern part of Germany versus the west? Germany has fully developed single payer healthcare, so why does a German who worked in Portland and went back to Germany yearn to return here? And then there’s the World Cup. Would you be able to carry on a discussion with a soccer fan about the more controversial issues related to the World Cup and the situation of the many immigrant players on German soccer teams? And how much do you know about the vibrant multi-cultural music scene in contemporary Germany?
Tune in for Die German Stunde — the first “German Hour” on KBOO. We’ll also let you know about upcoming events from the German American Society in Portland.
