I do not know of other connections between Greek besides with German.

For example, ein (one/a) in german = ein (one/a) in Greek.
Another example, niht (night) in Greek = nacht (night) in German.

You can't but wonder whether or not Greek and German came from the same language.

^ you mean indo-european?

it really can be pretty surprising how similar some of the more basic words can be from one IE language to another.

This what i was going to post, only quoting you too...

'eu' and 'oi' are pronounced like the German eu or oi.
They seem to use this pronunciation in some examples of reconstructed pronunciation I've heard on the Internet . Good that you know German :-).
