On June 13, Fulbright Austria and the Austrian Fulbright Alumni would like to invite you to our annual SummerFest at our offices in the MuseumsQuartier.
Fulbright Austria program participants traditionally attend the TU Ball as a group and enjoy the festivities together.
The 2019 Vienna Ball of Sciences is once again turning Vienna’s town hall into an experimental arrangement of an amusing thirst for knowledge! And this year, for the first time ever, Fulbright Austria is a part of it with a special sparkling reception.
If you plan on attending the ball, you're invited to stop by for a glass of sparkling wine and to network with current Fulbright US students (three of whom won a ticket to the ball) and Austrian Fulbright alumni from all programs.
In Arthur und Lilly, Fulbright alumna Lilly Maier tells the poignant story of an Austrian Holocaust survivor and her friendship with him.
"I had a wonderful life," Arthur Kern muses, meaning his childhood in Vienna – up to that fateful moment in 1939, when at the age of just ten he is suddenly separated from his family. Hoping to save him from the Holocaust, his Jewish parents send him away to an unfamiliar world with a Kindertransport, or children's transport – a traumatic experience for the ten-year-old. He manages to escape to America via France, but he never sees his family again.
