Berlin PE Officers and Staff pose before the launch of the exhibit in commemoration of the 60th anniversary of Philippine-German diplomatic relations. Inset is the screenshot of the audio-visual presentation on the chronology of Philippine-German relations.
Berlin, 26 June 2014. Earlier this month, the Philippines launched an exhibit to commemorate the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Germany.  The audio-visual exhibit, designed by Mr. Dakila Gonzales from the Philippine Tourism Office in Frankfurt, charted the shared history between Philippines and Germany, which actually originated during Ferdinand Magellan’s “discovery” of the Philippines in 1521.  Magellan’s company not only included German sailors but the expedition was itself financed by Jakob Fugger, a well-known banker from Augsburg.

As the Spanish colonial period took hold, German trading companies began operating in the Philippines in the 1830s and Germans would soon dominate the pharmaceutical industry through such enterprises as Botica Boie and Botica Zobel.  Burgeoning commercial links spurred the German trading states of Bremen and Hamburg to establish consulates in the country.  This strong German presence, which was the second largest expatriate community after the British, led to the creation of the German Reading Club (the forerunner of the current German Club) in 1880.  However, people-to-people interactions were not solely one way.  Dr. Jose Rizal pursued his ophthalmology training at the Charite Hospital in Berlin and he spent considerable time as well in Heidelberg, Wilhemsfeld, Dresden and Leipzig.  Rizal completed Noli Mi Tangere in 1886 and through his benefactor, Maximo Viola, had the first batch of 2,000 copies of his masterpiece published at the Berliner Buchdruckerei-Aktiengesellschaft.

Following the wreath-laying, Mayor Zellner cited ten students from Christian-Morgenstern Grundschule in Wilhemsfeld, who were awarded the Rizal Prize (Rizal-Preise) in recognition of their camaraderie and good behavior. The honorees received certificates and book vouchers from Mayor Zellner.  Another award, the Ullmer Prize, was given to the Mini Handball Department of SC Wilhemsfeld for their efforts to clean and preserve the forests. The award was named after Pastor Karl Ullmer, the Protestant pastor who hosted Dr. Rizal while he stayed in Wilhelmsfeld.
