Faces of the World – Germany

Face of the World: Germany

Our German faces are actor Ken Duken, from Heidelberg, and actress Josefine Preuss, from Brandenburg.

Historically speaking, Germany was once the seat of the Holy Roman Empire, which consisted at times of modern day Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, the Czech and Slovak Republics, as well as parts of eastern France, northern Italy, Slovenia, and western Poland. Naturally a lot of cultural fusion has taken place between in Germany and all these countries in general. Germany is mainly Christian and has been called “Das Land der Dichter und Denker” (The land of poets and thinkers), because of the major role its writers and philosophers have played in the development of Western thought.
