About

A historical perspective

The Cincinnati Donauschwaben Society is a non-profit organization preserving and celebrating German language and cultural heritage. Founded by German immigrants who settled in the industrial cities of the Midwest after fleeing war torn Germany in WWII, the Society has been in formal existence in Cincinnati since 1954. – For additional historical perspective, please click here to visit the society site.
