New book on how Cincinnati became a German heritage center is available
CINCINATTI, Ohio — How Cincinnati came to be a German heritage center is explored in a new book by Dr. Don Heinrich Tolzmann, “Cincinnati’s Germans Before World War I.”
The book provides a comprehensive history of German immigration, settlement, and influences in the Queen City of the West, from the late 18th to the early 20thcentury.
The author, who has visited New Ulm a number of times, has published several books covering various aspects of Cincinnati’s German heritage, such as the Roebling Bridge, Over-the-Rhine, Germans in the Civil War, and Spring Grove. His new book examines the time before World War I, which was a golden age for German heritage, according to the author.
Tolzmann is President of the German-American Citizens League and Curator of Cincinnati’s German Heritage Museum, an officer of the Steuben Society of America, and Book Review Editor for German Life Magazine. He has received many awards, including the German Federal Cross of Merit (Bundesverdienstkreuz).
