Germans came on the First Fleet, and by 1900 they were the fourth-largest European ethnic group on the continent, behind the English, Irish and Scots. Most settled on the land, and place names like Hahndorf, Hermannsburg and Fassifern speak eloquently of their presence.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Speech Science / Linguistics, grade: 2,0, University of Constance, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: [...] The aim of this work will be, on the one hand, to describe the history of German settlement on both continents, and more importantly of the influence of German on American English as well as on Australian English. On the other hand, a direct comparison between the German influences will be made, and hopefully it will prove that even though half the globe separates both continents from each other, there are similarities to be found. It is to be expected though, that if there are analogies, they will be regionally restricted, since both in the United States and in Australia, contact situations seem to be restricted to those areas where Germans settled from the earliest days on. Beside the clarification of some general definitions, which will prove necessary for an understandable analysis, the difficulties in researching this topic will be made evident. One thing that will not be considered in this examination is the influence of Yiddish- German on American English since, one the one hand, it proves hard to differentiate exactly between the German and the Yiddish aspects and on the other hand because the Jewish impact on Australian English is marginal. Therefore Yiddish-German is rather unimportant in the comparison of both varieties. [...]

Some Personal Stories of German Immigration to Australia since 1945

This book deals with immigration processes of Germans who have arrived in Australia since 1945. It is an attempt to catch the voices of these people, to let them talk about their hopes, aspirations, achievements and disappointments. In 2010 notices were sent out all over Australia, asking ‘Germans’ (most of them Australians today) to write about their experiences, about challenges and positive happenings. The book contains 28 chapters written by German-born women and men from all walks of life, some came to Australia as children, some as adults, others talk about the lives of their immigrant parents, one person pays tribute to a partner he has lost recently, and who describes her impressions about university life in Germany and in Australia, another person looks back at twenty-three years in Australia and the fine line that divides him and the Australian people. Most, but not all, are success stories. This book also includes three chapters about organisations that provided a buffer zone for new arrivals in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s: Club Harmony of Melbourne, the Club of the Danube Swabians in Adelaide, and the SA German Club. The final chapter is an interview with a person who had to flee Nazi Germany in 1938, with Ernie Salomon.

Comprising the first five years worth of essays and blog posts from my German adventure, Heimat is a collection of stories, ideas, and meditations on all of the dust you kick up when you move countries, when plans and expectations go out the window. It is about relationships; with countries, with people, with ourselves. It is about the Germans, their beautiful country and being quite foreign within it. It is about having a Heimat and finding another on the other side of the world.

The German speaking community of Victoria between 1850 and 1930

At the time of Australian Federation in 1901, German immigrants constituted two per cent of the population of Victoria. This book examines how they settled, formed a communal infrastructure, and how they related to their Anglo-Celtic hosts. It is shown that their attempts to form a cohesive community failed, by investigating the role played by the Lutheran Church, German associations, community leaders, and the rift between rural and urban communities. The changing relationship between the British Empire, the German Reich and emerging Australian nationalism receives close attention. The book tests and then proves a hypothesis that rural communities were more resilient and better equipped to survive, while urban communities were not.

Internationalising a National Image

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: "Made in Germany" is often regarded to be a guarantor for quality and reliability and German companies have a global reputation for manufacturing products that are superior to products of companies with a non-German identity. This thesis analyses the internationalisation process of the national image of "Made in Germany" with particular regard to Western Australia. The thesis starts with an assessment of recent developments in the global business environment before going on to highlight internationalisation strategies in general and the specific impact of culture on internationalisation. Subsequently, the paper focuses on the German context by presenting issues associated with the identity commonly attributed to Germans, including national identity, German culture, and German management styles and principles. An evaluation of the "country-of-origin" phenomenon, with a specific look at the case of "Made in Germany", and an assessment of German companies in the international arena conclude the section on the German context. A further focus of the thesis is the connection between Germany and Australia, specifically the attractiveness of the Western Australian market and German business presence in Australia. The method of research consists of two major parts: a theoretical framework and a empirical analysis. The theoretical framework is based on a study of literature and provides the foundation necessary for the empirical analysis. The empirical analysis consists of the collection of primary data by means of a questionnaire and the statistical interpretation thereof. The questionnaire was specifically compiled for this thesis. Findings of the paper include that "Made in Germany" is generally considered to be a competitive advantage over companies with a non-German national identity. Both the theoretical framework and the empirical analysis indicate that the national image of Germany and its accompanying positive reputation has been introduced successfully to Western Australia, although German companies operating within Australia seem to adopt a "Be German, Act Australian" approach. A German dominance prevails in the ownership of the organisation while nationality of staff, in-house business culture and management styles and principles are predominantly non-German/Australian. Respondents thus act and are global and local at the same time. Inhaltsverzeichnis:Table of Contents: List of Tables and Figuresiii Executive [...]

In March 1918, with the fear of a one-million-man American army landing in France, the Germans attacked. In response, Australian soldiers were involved in a number of engagements, culminating in the Second Battle of Villers-Bretonneux and the saving of Amiens, and Paris, from German occupation. Then came General John Monash's first victory as the Commanding Officer of the newly formed Australian Corps at Hamel. This victory, and the tactics it tested, became crucial to the Allied victory after 8 August, the 'black day of the German Army'. On this day the major Allied counteroffensive began, with the AIF in the vanguard of the attack. The Australians, with the Canadians to the south and the British across the Somme to the north, drove the Germans back, first along the line of the Somme and then across the river to Mont St Quentin, Pronne and on to the formidable Hindenburg Line, before the last Australian infantry action at Montbrehain in early October. Fast-paced and tense, the story of The Last 100 Days is animated by the voices of Australian soldiers as they endured the war's closing stages with humour and stoicism; and as they fought a series of battles in which they played a pivotal role in securing Allied victory.

The collected essays in Migration and Cultural Contact: Germany and Australia investigate historical documents, letters, film, literature and other cultural sources to reveal how each country influenced the culture, intellectual thought and aesthetics of the other from earliest colonial times through to today. Opening with the cultural and religious legacy of Carl Strehlow's missionary work at Hermannnsburg, its impact on Freud's cultural anthropology and DaDa, the book investigates the different aspects of the German presence in Australia: from the 19th-century migrations to the 'enemy aliens' of two world wars. Other essays explore representations of Australia in the German literary imagination: is it Europe's Utopia or Paradise Lost?

Never Forget that You are a German

This book is the first detailed cultural study of Nazi ideology as it was presented to the interwar Australian public, most particularly its German-Australian population.

This book is the first detailed cultural study of Nazi ideology as it was presented to the interwar Australian public, most particularly its German-Australian population. The newspaper <I>Die Brucke (<I>The Bridge) was launched in Sydney in 1934. It was the brainchild of the League of Germans in Australia and New Zealand and the German-Australian Chamber of Commerce. -Deutschtum- (Germanness) was at the heart of its mission, as it was at the heart of National Socialism itself. The question of how Germanness could be defined was at the core of German political and social debate long before Germany's national formation, and only intensified following it. National Socialism provided a new means of defining -Deutschtum-. <I>Die Brucke, seeking to lead a renewed embrace of Germanness among members of the German-Australian community, hoped that German identity would be exhumed from its perceived anglicised entombment by wholly adopting a Nazi understanding of German self. As such, <I>Die Brucke was partially funded by Germany's Nazi government. <I>Die Brucke's publication represents the most significant statement made in Australia of a nazified -Deutschtum- and a challenge to the idea that Nazism was -not for export-."

The Internment of Germans in Second World War Australia

This thesis explores the internment of Germans and people of German origin in Australia during the Second World War. Besides examining how Germans in Australia were treated during the war; and the origins of the government's decision to intern almost 2000 Germans and German-Australians; this thesis will also ask what effect Nazi Germany's aggressive, trans-national project to revive German Kultur (Deutschtum) in German communities around the world had on Germans and people of German origin in Australia? Therefore this thesis will consider Germans not just as objects of xenophobia or prejudice, but also as agents in their own history. In taking such an approach, this thesis does not seek to ignore or understate the humiliation and pain of racial prejudice, but argues that the German experience of internment was shaped as well by the Germans' own actions - thereby making an original contribution to the literature on internment. This thesis addresses these questions by examining comprehensive archival and printed sources, and the in-depth experiences of four individuals and their families before and during the war, as well as exploring how such events are remembered through oral history by those family members today. It explores the negotiations between the past, present and the historian, adding new dimensions to internment history.
