This exhibit, created by the University of Iowa, visualizes the story of German immigration to Iowa in the context of global migration to the American Midwest, and examines pro- and anti-immigration sentiment, the value and challenges of bilingualism, and questions of belonging and exclusion in times of international and domestic conflict. It will be supplemented with artifacts from the Max Kade Institute Library.
