Was man von hier aus sehen kann

von Mariana Leky


Vom Verlag:


This book is also available in English and as a movie.


The San Antonio zoo has had Okapi offspring in the fall of 2023. 

GTHS Reads, a community outreach led by Constanze Heitkoetter, was created in the spring of 2020 to engage and connect community members within the common interest of German-Texan heritage and the German language through literature.

Thanks to technology, anyone can join the monthly virtual meetings on Zoom. We have had participants from Austin, New Braunfels, San Antonio, Houston, South Central Texas, the Hill Country, and Germany.

We will discuss a variety of genres and titles, ranging from German literature in German to books about German-Texan interests in English.

Participation is free of charge after registering on the GTHS website.

Registered participants will receive a Zoom link prior to the meeting.

We hope to see you there!

Constanze Heitkötter is a GTHS member and has been teaching German classes for children and adults at the German Free School in Austin for more than 12 years.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Constanze at

Registration is FREE.
