Regarding The German School of Guatemala. A large number of German immigrants moved to Guatemala beginning in the 1880s, most working in industries associated with the new coffee plantations. The German School in Quetzaltenango, a well as those in Guatemala City and Cobán, were closed in 1941 due to U.S. pressure at the beginning of World War II.
