By 1900, one in four Chicagoans was either German born or had a German-born parent. No other ethnic groups thumbprint has been larger in helping establish Chicago as a major economic and cultural center nor has any groups influence been more erasedMoreBy 1900, one in four Chicagoans was either German born or had a German-born parent. No other ethnic groups thumbprint has been larger in helping establish Chicago as a major economic and cultural center nor has any groups influence been more erased by the passage and vicissitudes of time.

Lost German Chicago traces the mosaic of German life through the tumultuous events of the Beer Riots, Haymarket Affair, Prohibition, and Americas entry into two world wars. The book is a companion piece to the Lost German Chicago exhibition debuting in the newly created DANK-Haus German American Cultural Center museum, located in what is still known today as the German town of the north side of Chicago.

Entrusted as the caretaker of many archives, artifacts, and historical documents from many now defunct German organizations, the DANK-Haus German American Cultural Center has been committed to preserving history, traditions, and contributions of Germans and German Americans for over 50 years.
