"Sharing the Bounty" at Thanksgiving

With fond memories of last year’s Thanksgiving dinner, we are looking forward to this year’s feast on November 20. The joint venture with DAAD and the Alexander-von-Humboldt-Foundation has become a new Berlin classic and will include a traditional turkey meal with all the fixings, as well as an American potluck for dessert – a veritable cornucopia of all things sweet prepared by and shared with our grantees, alumni and friends.

There is usually a special guest who surprises and delights the festive gathering – who might it be this year?

Highlights from last year’s Thanksgiving event include the carving of the first turkey by then-U.S. Ambassador to Germany, John Emerson, with narration provided by Fulbright’s Executive Director, Dr. Oliver Schmidt.
