More than 300 years ago Germans from the Palatinate, a region in southwestern Germany, left their ancestral home to seek a new life in Pennsylvania. They brought along their unique dialect, their culture and customs, which eventually came to be known as Pennsylvania Dutch. A German film team along with protagonist and YouTuber Douglas Madenford went in search of the common roots in Pennsylvania and the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate (Rheinland-Pfalz). The result is a highly entertaining and informative documentary film called “Hiwwe wie Driwwe” — or “Over Here as Over There” — which will celebrate its Washington, DC premiere at the German-American Heritage Museum.
