The German-American Hall of Fame is honoring north German-born The Young and the Restless actor Eric Braeden (Victor Newman).

The Germans gave us bratwursts, Levi Strauss, the accordion, and glue sticks, but soap fans' favorite thing from Germany would have to be The Young and the Restless' Eric Braeden (Victor Newman). And speaking of the Bredenbek-born actor, he was just inducted into the German-American Hall of Fame.

The actor took to Twitter to announce the news, sharing with fans a photo of him thinking about his speech for the special event.

The German-American Hall of Fame is a non-profit organization established by prominent Americans of German ancestry to recognize and celebrate the impact of German immigrants to the United States. Additional 2017 inductees include piano maker Henry Steinway, sex therapist “Dr Ruth” Westheimer, baseball player Lou Gehrig, and actress Doris Day.

UPDATE: Eric Braeden posted a photo during the induction ceremony. You can check it out below.

What do you think about Braeden being inducted into the German-American Hall of Fame? Are there any other 2017 guests of honor you are surprised to hear have German heritage? We want to hear from you -- and there are many ways you can share your thoughts.
