Goethe-Institut's 50th anniversary in Canada
It's been 50 years since the Goethe-Institut opened up a small office in Montreal. The centre offers acess to German culture and language, and also fosters cultural exchanges.
The institute's director, Mechtild Manus, came to Montreal after working for Goethe Institutes around the world - in Portugal, Egypt, Indonesia and her home country, Germany. She spoke with Sonali Karnick about the institute's anniversary celebrations and their achievements since she arrived. (Photo: Mechtild Manus, centre, at Car-Free Day in 2010.)
