German President Joachim Gauck
University of Pennsylvania President Amy Gutmann and Penn’s Perry World House hosted Joachim Gauck, president of the Federal Republic of Germany, for a public lecture on shared US-German values. His lecture, Freedom—our shared bond, given on October 6, discussed many collaborations between the two countries since the mid-18th century, when Penn began this country’s oldest German studies program in 1754, with the first professor of German hired in 1757. Benjamin Franklin traveled to Germany in 1766.
