Ambassador Emerson visits School in Berlin-Lichtenberg

On March 10, 2015, Ambassador Emerson visited the Johann-Gottfried-Herder Gymnasium in Berlin-Lichtenberg, on invitation by Dr. Martin Pätzold, MdB. After being received with hot Brazilian beats from the percussion group “Bateria Brincadeira” and a welcome by some student participants in the school’s GAPP exchange with a partner school in Texas, he sat down for a very intense discussion with approx. 300 students from the upper grades. We thank all those involved for your hospitality, the outstanding organization and for the excellent and critical questions. A special thank-you to Antonia, Alina and Julia for the wonderful greeting and introduction and to Janina and Christopher for the professional moderation! It was a perfect morning!
