„Deutsch-Maltesische Gesellschaft“, the Maltese-German Association in Germany

 

"Through events organized by both, the German-Maltese Circle in Malta and the German-Maltese Association here in Germany, people of both countries get to know each other to promote friendship between them."

These are the words of the former Maltese President H. E. Dr George Abela during his visit to Germany at the state banquet on March 11, 2014. 

 And H. E. Marie-Louise Coleiro-Preca, the following President of Malta, mentioned the DMG in her speech on the German national holiday in Malta:

“It is noteworthy to also mention and praise the good work that is carried out by the German-Maltese Association based in Adenau and the Malta Centre at the University of Bremen.”

 There is only one Maltese-German Association in Germany.

 The “Deutsch-Maltesische Gesellschaft” (Maltese-German Association) in Germany is the partner organization of the German Maltese Circle in Malta. It was set up at following contacts between Dr. Albert Friggieri and the former Mayor of the town of Adenau, Bernd Schiffarth. In 1991 the DMG was founded to promote Maltese-German relations and to strengthen the friendship between the two countries through cultural and social activities.

 The DMG is a voluntary organization, non-political and non-denominational.

 H. E. Ambassador Dr. Albert Friggieri congratulated the DMG on the occasion of its 25th anniversary.

The aims of the DMG

Promotion of youth work and exchanges

Schools are supported by information about Malta and by part-financing of school trips to Malta.

In recent years, the DMG has also supported Maltese medical students who spent a month of medical training in German hospitals.

Exhibitions and Cultural Events

A number of Maltese artists have presented their work in Germany with the support of the DMG. On show were for example paintings by Ruth Bianco, Godwin Cutajar, George Farrugia, Stephen Grima, Adrian Camilleri, Anthony Caruana, Joseph Casapinta and sculptures by Charles Sammut, Sina Farrugia and Joe Xuereb.

DMG-members found their way to Frankfurt and Cologne in order to attend performances of the Maltese Tenor Joseph Calleja.

During the annual Europe Day in May in Bonn and at local festivals in Adenau and other places the DMG advertises Malta.

On the occasion of 'Malta EU Council Presidency 2017', the DMG organized “Malta-Days” in Cologne and Adenau.

https://foreignandeu.gov.mt/en/Embassies/Me_Berlin/Pages/News/%E2%80%9CMalta-Days%E2%80%9D-in-Cologne-and-Adenau.aspx

For 'Valletta – European Cultural Capital 2018’, the DMG organized lectures about Valletta held by Historian Dr. Dieter Bangert and Dr. Michael Losse with the young Maltese artist Emma Cutajar, accompanied by her father.

Also, in 2018 the DMG supported the dance-performance “It’s Schiller”, shown at Teatru Salesian in Sliema.

The St Paul Choral Society´s tour to Germany, France and Luxembourg in 2019 was co-sponsored by the DMG.  

Member trips are organized annually – usually to places with a relationship to Malta.

In 2011 there was one-week trip to Malta with special sightseeing and an invitation to the residence of the German Ambassador H. E. Bernd Braun in Lija. In 2013 DMG members travelled to Bremen in the North of Germany, including a visit to the Malta Centre at Bremen University with a lesson by Professor Dr. Thomas Stolz about the Maltese language.

In 2014 the destination of our membership tour was Potsdam. This trip included a friendly invitation by the Maltese Ambassador H. E. Dr. Albert Friggieri and his wife, Ms. Catherine Friggieri-Bertucat to their residence in Berlin-Zehlendorf.

Other destinations have been Vienna and a meeting with 'Malta-Friends of Austria' for example or Leipzig and Utrecht.

The annual journeys offer members plenty of opportunity to get to know each other and share their experiences.

Information for Members and the German public

The DMG frequently answers to questions about sightseeing in Malta, travel arrangements for groups and individuals, translation of the Maltese language etc..

These activities, important events or latest developments in Malta are being published in the association’s Newsletter (in paper and by e-mail) which appears quarterly.

The newsletter is a platform for the presentation of the DMG-work and thus for the members a valuable source of information.

In addition, the DMG provides up-to-date information for its members about current events and - especially in these Corona times - about travelling from and to Malta.

DMG-members present a cross-section of the German population including pensioners and students who all share the love for Malta. The Maltese Ambassadors and all honorary consuls for Malta in Germany are also members of the DMG.

Currently the Association's membership stands at 165 people.

The membership fee is 21, - € p.a. (single-membership).
