A Celebration of Horst Daemmrich, Professor Emeritus

Many generations of Penn Germanics faculty, alumni and current students gathered to celebrate our colleague and friend, Horst Daemmrich, Professor Emeritus, and to launch his new book, Vergangenheit, on the role of the past in contemporary German literature. Seated next to him is Ingrid Daemmrich, his frequent collaborator in their work on themes and motifs in Western literature.
