German Chilean Deutsch-Chilenen Chileno-alemanes Notable German Chileans: Ena von Baer • Rodolfo Armando Philippi • Miguel Kast • Evelyn Matthei Total population 150,000 ~ 200,000 [1] Regions with significant populations Valdivia, Valparaíso, Santiago de Chile, Temuco, Talca, Concepción, Viña del Mar, Osorno, Puerto Varas. Languages Chilean Spanish, German Religion Christianity (mostly Roman Catholic and Protestant) Related ethnic groups German, German Americans, German-Argentinians, German-Brazilian, German Mexican, German-Paraguayan German Chileans (Spanish chileno-alemanes Spanish pronunciation: [tʃiˈleno aleˈmanes ], German Deutsch-Chilenen) are an important ethnic group in Chile; they are Chileans of German descent deriving their German ethnicity from one or both parents – they also include a minority of German citizens holding permanent residency in Chile. A major criterion unifying this distinctive Chilean ethnic minority has more to do with linguistics than to the geographic location or the nationality of their ancestors.[citation needed] Hence, the group German Chileans also incorporates descendents of Austrians, Swiss Germans, Silesians, Alsatians and other German-speaking groups. From the middle of the 19th century to the present they have played a significant role in the economic, political and cultural development of the Chilean nation. Most German Chileans are descendents from German immigrants that began to settle in Chile in the middle of the 19th century, many of them after the failed liberal German Revolution of 1848. Their main settlements were and remain mostly in Chile’s IX (Araucanía Region), XIV (Los Ríos Region) and X (Región de los Lagos) regions in the so-called small south of Chile, all part of northern Patagonia.

Valdivia also arrested and took hostage the local Cacique (viz. tribal leaders and chiefs) to weaken the society of the local Mapuche people. Blumenthal took part in the defence of the Spanish settlement of Santiago when the indigenous people launched a counter-offensive on September 11, 1541 in attempt to free their tribal leaders held hostage by the conquistadores. Later Blumenthal took part in the consolidation of the Spanish settlement that would became the Talagante Province and he was the first engineer in the remote colony. Blumenthal’s son in law, Pedro Lisperguer – born Peter Lisperger in Worms, Germany - became the mayor of Santiago in 1572. Another figure of German origin, Johann von Bohon (Spanish alias Juan Bohon), is ordered by Valdivia to establish the city of La Serena in 1544. Hamburg and Valparaíso The bay of Valparaíso 1830 In 1810 Chile became independent from Spain and thus acquired the freedom to engage in trade with any nation. The port city of Valparaíso became a major center for trade with Hamburg with commercial travellers from Germany staying for lengthy periods of time to work in Valparaíso, with some settling permanently. On May 9, 1838 the first German cultural organization was established, Club Alemán de Valparaíso, which allowed the German visitors and residents to hold cultural functions. The club began to organize literary, musical and theatre productions and became a stepping stone in the cultural life that subsequently emerged in Valparaíso. Aquinas Ried, a physician, became widely known in the city for composing operas, for writing poetry and plays. The club had its own orchestras and academic choir (singakademie) which would perform works composed by local musicians.[1] Colonization of Southern Chile The Chilean government encouraged German immigration in 1848, a time of revolution in Germany. Before that Bernhard Eunom Philippi recruited nine working families to emigrate from Hesse to Chile. The origin of the German immigrants in Chile began with the Law of Selective Immigration of 1845. The objective of this law was to bring people of a medium social/high cultural level to colonize the southern regions of Chile; these were between Valdivia and Puerto Montt. Some report[citation needed] that 20,000 immigrated as a result. According to another source, no more than 5,600 out of about 11,000 German emigrants to Chile between 1846 and 1914 settled in Southern Chile.[2] The process was administered by Vicente Pérez Rosales by mandate of the then-president Manuel Montt. The German immigrants revived the domestic economy and they changed the southern zones. An example of this constructive spirit was stated by the leader of the first colonists Carlos Anwandter, who proclaimed to all the colonists: We shall be honest and laborious Chileans as the best of them, we shall defend our adopted country joining in the ranks of our new countrymen, against any foreign oppression and with the decision and firmness of the man that defends his country, his family and his interests. Never will have the country that adopts us as its children, reason to repent of such illustrated, human and generous proceeding,... - Carlos Anwandter The expansion and economic development of Valdivia were limited in the early 19th century. To stimulate economic development, the Chilean government initiated a highly-focused immigration program under Vicente Pérez Rosales as government representative.[citation needed] Through this program, thousands of Germans settled in the area, incorporating then-modern technology and know-how to develop agriculture and industry. Some of the new immigrants stayed in Valdivia but others were given forested land, which they cleared for farms[3] Valdivia, situated at some distance from the coast, on the Calle-calle river, is a German town. Everywhere you meet German faces, German signboards and placards alongside the Spanish. There is a large German school, a church and various Vereine, large shoe-factories, and, of course, breweries... - Carl Skottsberg For ten years after the Revolutions of 1848 in the German states, immigrants came from Germany. They established themselves principally in the Llanquihue in the towns of Frutillar, Puerto Octay, Puerto Varas, Osorno and Puerto Montt all areas known as Northern Patagonia. Valdivia prospered with industries, including shipyards, the Hoffmann Gristmill, the Rudloff shoe factory and many more enterprises. The steel mills of Corral were the biggest recorded private investment in Chile at the time, and were the first steel mills in South America. In 1891 Valdivia became a commune according to a law that created that subdivisions in Chile. After that the Malleco Viaduct had been built in 1890 the railroads advanced further south reaching Valdivia in 1895. The first train with passengers arrived in 1899. The German military culture had great influence on the Army of Chile. At the end of the 19th century, adopted the Prussian military tradition, especially after the Civil War of 1891. A German-Chilean, Emil Körner, reached the rank of commander-in-chief of the Army in 1900. Subsequently, a new wave of German immigrants arrived in Chile, with many settling in Temuco, and Santiago. Many founded businesses; for example, Horst Paulmann's small store in the capital of the Araucanía Region grew into Cencosud, one of the largest businesses in the region. German-Chilean relations German values have influenced Chilean culture and economic development. For example, The establishment of commercial houses and German shipping businesses in Valparaíso The foundation of the German Club in 1838 The exploration of the Patagonia by the German Bernardo Phillipi, and his participation in the Chilean possession of the Strait of Magallanes The German immigration to the south of Chile after World War II Colonization and development of the city of Valdivia and the outskirts The exploitation of the nitrate fields The close relations between the ports of Valparaíso and Hamburg The establishment of a number of Chilean-German fire companies. (Nearly 20) Migration of ethnic Germans into Chile from Argentina in the early 20th century.[citation needed] In Germany is also possible to find testimonies of the links between Chile and Germany. The building Chilehaus (The House of Chile) in the port of Hamburg symbolizes the past trade relations between the countries. The building was constructed in the 20th century, designed with the form of a bow of ship. 20th Century During World War II, many German Jews fled to Chile before and during the Holocaust. For example, the families of Mario Kreutzberger and Tomás Hirsch came to Chile during this time. After World War II, many leaders of the Nazi Germany tried to take refuge in the central and southern regions of the country, fleeing trials against them in Europe and elsewhere; one such successful escapee was Walter Rauff. Paul Schäfer even founded Colonia Dignidad, a German enclave in the Maule Region, in which abuses against human rights were allegedly carried out. German Chileans today Raw beef crudos are considered a typical German-Chilean dish. The one in picture are from Café Hausmann in Valdivia . The exact number German-Chileans is unknown, because many of the early arrivals' descendants have intermarried and assimilated over the past 150 years. 5,906 are known to have been born in Germany (2009), and approximate figures suggest 500,000 to 600,000 direct descendants. Today the German language is still spoken by about 40,000 Chileans in daily life.[4] There are also German schools and German-language newspapers and periodicals in Chile (e.g., CONDOR - a weekly German-language newspaper). Notable German Chileans Andres Anwandter, poet Carlos Anwandter, settler Karen Doggenweiler, journalist Hermann Eberhard, explorer, founder of the first settlements in western Patagonia Emil Körner, army commander Evelyn Matthei, minister Fernando Matthei, former commander of the Air Force Rodolfo Armando Philippi, naturalist Carlos Schneeberger, former footballer Alex von Schwedler, footballer Ena von Baer, politician Religious affiliations Many Germans who migrated to Chile practice Roman Catholicism, but there are others with Protestant affiliations. Germans introduced the first Evangelical Protestant and Lutheran churches to Chile.
