Save the date! Journey around the world to Germany on November 9th at St. Michael’s Cemetery in Queens with our very own Yorkville/Kleindeutschland Historian Kathy Jolowicz !

The traditional Oktoberfest that Germany is known for is happening at an untraditional time at St. Michael’s Cemetery, 3 pm, on Saturday, November 9. St. Michael’s Cemetery is hosting a community event series: A Journey Around The World, that highlights a new country each time. On November 9, St. Mike’s will explore the influence of Germany – via a spectacular video and presentation by historian Kathy Jolowicz, the Yorkville/Kleindeutschland Historical Society, covering Germany’s influence and history from the 17th century through the 1960s, with emphasis on the era from the 1930s through the 1960s.

Keeping the German heritage alive, Jolowicz is a division marshal and Public Relations Committee member of the German American von Steuben Parade, as well as the founder of the 30-year-old German Language Learning Club and Steuben Society member.
