The Cambridge University German Society was founded in 1908 and consists of students who share a common interest in German society, culture, and history. We aim to encourage intercultural discussions by providing a platform for mutual exchange for both Germans and non-Germans. Our Society welcomes members of all nationalities. We regularly organise talks, exchanges with other societies, and social events.

Join the European and German Societies for a joint film night! We will be screening “The Lives of Others” (imdb 8.5) in German with English subtitles! The movie is about the monitoring of an artist in former East Germany. We are very happy that Dr Henning Grunwald from the Department of History has agreed to give a talk (about 20mins) before the screening as a short introduction, followed by a chance for questions. The talk will begin at 6:30 and the movie at around 7:10. As usual, we will provide Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. The location will be announced soon!
Attendance is free.
