Right in Our Own Backyard: A Nazi Bund Camp on the Meramec River – Diane Everman

April 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

German cultural activity gatherings were frequent and natural in depression-era St. Louis, an area with a significant German immigrant presence from the 1830s forward. Beginning in 1937, a different type of “clubhouse” arose on the banks of the Meramec River. It was associated with the German American Bund, a German-American Nazi organization. The burning of the “Deutsch Horst” camp in September 1939 sparked investigation into the camp and the St. Louis area Bund and its members. On April 29, join Diane Everman, Ph.D., Archivist of the St. Louis Jewish Community Archives/Holocaust Museum Archives, to learn more about this fascinating chapter in local St. Louis history.
