History of the Club


In November of 1964 Holger Obermann, an American of German descent, got together with others to form the first German American club in Hollywood, with the purpose of preserving the traditions, culture, and heritage of their German homes and country they left behind to start a new life in America. Since then, many dedicated members have given their time and talents to continue the founders' original challenges. Click here for details.
