Why did they come to the U.S.?

The German's came to the United States because war was going on. The German's did not like Hitler because he tortured people. They also came for religious reasons. In America you could believe in your religion. They could not get jobs in Germany and were going to starve.

Traditions They Brought

When Germans arrived to the US they brought the traditions of Christmas trees and Easter egg hunts. Oktoberfest is a German tradition that is still celebrated today. Foods they brought over were sauerkraut and apple strudel pie.
