A Stammtisch in New York offered German-speaking emigrants the opportunity to converse in their mother tongue.
Until recently, a very special Stammtisch took place in New York every Wednesday. Gaby Glueckselig, who passed away in April, invited emigrants into her apartment. In her living room on the Upper East Side, the emigrated congregated at least once a week to speak German and to exchange stories. They talked about everyday life, politcs and cultre, but also about the stories of escape. Many guests were Jewish and fleed the National Socialists during World War II.
