Friends of the German Historical Institute

The Friends of the German Historical Institute (FGHI) was founded in 1991 by prominent American historians as a not-for-profit organization to support the programs of the German Historical Institute. Its officers are senior scholars who represent major professional associations such as the American Historical Association (AHA), the AHA’s Conference Group for Central European History, the German Studies Association, and the Society for German-American Studies. The purpose of the Friends is to provide a link between the North American academic community and the GHI, and to help support special programs. The Friends of the GHI make possible a broad array of scholarly, educational, and public outreach programs that the GHI could not otherwise undertake. Please consider supporting the Friends with a donation. The Friends of the GHI is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization.
