Germany in Europe 1963.
Stanford Univ., CA.
The results of the 10-week National Defense Education Act (NDEA) Third-Level Institute for Secondary School Teachers of German, conducted by Stanford University in Bad Boll, Germany, are compiled in individual reports written in both German and English by the 25 participants. Emphasizing close contact with the residents in their working and home environments through informal discussions and lectures, the summary attempts to portray actual scenes of the country and its people. The principal aim of the study was to discover the extent of Germany's Europeanization. NDEA participants sought answers to this question by posing queries on NATO, the Common Market, the West European Union, the problems of reunification, and German history. Reports on visits made to cities of cultural and historical interest, to the Beutelsbach winery, a Gut Nippenberg farm complex, and the Daimler-Benz automotive works, complete the presentation.
