“Deutsch Perfekt” is a magazine for Deutsch als Fremdsprache (DaF for short; in English it’s German as a Foreign Language). If you are serious about learning German and want to spend some quality time with a magazine specifically for DaF, I *highly recommend* this magazine. I've subscribed to it since the very first issue. Originally i read it with the intention of learning more German and expanding my vocabulary, however now I read it to keep up my German skills and to stay in touch with Germanic culture. DP features the three, main German-speaking countries of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
The Deutsche Welle now has multimedia project on their site that has researched Jewish Germans who have gone to other countries and collected their stories. It’s a fascinating project that tells stories from around the world.
