|Mennonite Estates in Imperial Russia||View|
|by Helmut Huebert|
paperback, 415 pages, $35.00|
|Revised and Expanded edition. This book is an index of Mennonite estates in Russia, mainly between the years of 1813 to 1920. Though most of these estates have disappeared with only open fields in view now, this book provides a link to the past for those searching for family roots. All estates mentioned in any source for this time period and in all areas of Russia are mentioned even though some estates were dissolved and replaced by others. These estates were not only prominent in the Mennonite communities but also in the Russian communities participating in the local and regional government affairs. The book is complete with maps of various estates and regions, biographies of a number of Mennonite estate owners and lists of estates, estate owners, managers and teachers in both Imperial Russia and the Crimea. |

|Mennonites of Dutch/German ancestry began emigrating from Prussia and
settling in the Ukraine in 1789, following invitations and guarantees granted
by Catherine II of Russia. One hundred years later, the Mennonites in Russia
had prospered. They now numbered some 70,000 persons living in progressive
settlements, leading the way in farming and manufacturing.
The Mennonites who settled in Russia kept their language, their religion, and
their culture intact. But as the nineteenth century drew to a close, Mennonite
community identity was increasingly seen as a threat. There was first a drive
for russification under the Czars; there then was increasing suspicion of all
things German with the outbreak of the First World War; and finally the
Bolshevik Revolution brought Christianity and prosperity into question. The
Second World War and its brutal Stalinist aftermath succeeded in destroying
life in the Mennonite colonies.
The first person accounts translated here tell the stories of people who almost
miraculously survived successive waves of revolution, civil war,
assassination, economic and political purges, and arbitrary arrest and
banishment. The stories of these survivors are just now beginning to be
published, in both German and Russian.
Sarah Dyck's selection and skillful translation of these memoirs opens a rare
window through which English readers can begin to grasp the reality of life in
the Soviet empire for those judged to be enemies of the People. These stories
provide graphic and personal documentation of a land and a people in
