GERMAN HERITAGE OF MISSOURI


MHC provides and supports programming to promote Missouri’s rich cultural heritage and historical significance. By partnering with organizations throughout the state of Missouri, MHC aims to provide opportunities for the commemoration and exploration of our state’s German, Native American, Civil War, and rural heritage. With the assistance of the Missouri General Assembly, MHC has received national recognition for innovation in this area.

“HAMBURG: HERITAGE, RESILIENCE, COMPLIANCE”

Missouri Humanities and Missouri Life present, “Hamburg: Heritage, Resilience, Compliance.”  Hamburg, Missouri was a small but thriving community founded by German immigrants in the mid-1800s.  In 1940, the War Department notified the residents, the majority of which were still of German descent, that their town would be demolished for the construction of a TNT plant to assist in the war effort.  Very little remains of Hamburg, but the memories are still vivid.  We strive to capture those stories.  See the Hamburg trailer here:
