What we're about

This group is operated by the Dallas Goethe Center (1/1/20) and offers programs and activities for those who are interested in promoting German language and culture. We hope to bring “ein bißchen Heimatgefühl” to North Texas, and provide you with the opportunity to share your love for the German culture and language “bei deutscher Gemütlichkeit”.

If you would like to brush up your German or learn it for the first time, we offer classes throughout the Metroplex, in Arlington/Fort Worth, Dallas and Denton. We recognize the close relationship between culture and language learning. We therefore give our students the opportunity to meet native speakers and other people who share an interest in fostering an appreciation for German language, culture, and traditions. Studying German with us offers students much more than an ordinary language program. They will become members of a community.

Film Screening " When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit"

SMU McCord Auditorium

6:30PM reception sponsored by the Dallas Goethe Center!

SMU’s Deparment of World Languages and Literatures is showing the German language drama “When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit” (Als Hitler das rosa Kaninchen stahl) as part of their 8th Annual International Film Festival. As this year’s theme is “Women in Film: behind and in front of the Camera,” the German contribution features a film directed by Caroline Link and based on a semi-autobiographical by Judith Kerr, the daughter of famous theatre critic Alfred Kerr.

In “When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit”, a 9-year-old Jewish girl’s world changes overnight during the winter of[masked]. Warned of the threat behind Hitler’s rise to power, Anna’s father, a famous journalist and critic of fascism living in Berlin, leaves the country to establish a life in exile. His family — Anna, her 12-year-old brother Max, and her mother Dorothea — follow him shortly thereafter. They flee first to Zürich then to Paris and finally settle in London. Anna must leave everything behind, including her beloved pink rabbit, and face a new life full of challenges and privations abroad.

Shown from the perspective of a curious, adventuresome child, the story captures the peril and thrill of escape in Europe during National Socialism.

The screening takes place at SMU – McCord Auditorium, Dallas Hall 306 (3rd floor) and is free and open to the public.

The trailer is available here.
