Book Launch – The History of Ghanaians in Germany


It is only by knowing our past and reflecting on our present that we can imagine and create our future.

The History of Ghanaians in Germany is the work of several authors who have written, compiled and edited their stories in two languages, English and German.

The German Edition is titled Die Geschichte der Ghanaer in Deutschland.

TopAfric in collaboration with the Ghana community in Germany is organising a series of book releases across the country, with the first event taking place in Hamburg on Saturday, 7 November 2020, at AFROTOPIA. The address for AFROTOPIA is Biedermannplatz 19, 22083 Hamburg. The program starts promptly at 17.00.

The presentation is open to all interested persons and offers an excellent opportunity for dialogue, debate and exchange of information. The book will serve as a guide for researchers and other people interested in engaging with the Ghanaian community. It is a valuable reference for state institutions, individuals and organizations wanting to look beyond the statistics and understand the community on its terms. It will offer Ghanaians, a population with natural diversity in a society so large, the chance to learn about other experiences, perspectives and stories among their fellow countrymen in Germany.

Twenty-five personalities contributed to the book: 21 Ghanaians, three Germans and one British. Launchings will also take place in the following cities: Kiel, Bremen, Hannover, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Dortmund, Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Munich and Saarbrücken.

The special guest of honour is Her Excellency Ama Gina Blay, Ambassador of the republic of Ghana to Germany.

The general public is warmly welcomed. Please receive a copy of either the English or the German version for yourself, your friends and your family members. Then, sit back and enjoy the stories within each page.

God bless Ghana
God bless Germany
