    Founded in 1959, DANK stands for Deutsch Amerikanischer National Kongress. The DANK Haus is the original chapter of this national organization; the DANK Haus also provides a home for the Chicago North Chapter of DANK.

    Our mission is to preserve and promote German culture, heritage, and language through activities including, but not limited to, maintaining a center consisting of a museum, art gallery, library, and language school, and organizing educational and social programming focusing on and emphasizing the history, traditions, and contributions of Germans and German Americans.
