Help Celebrate and Preserve Our German Russian History

Without the generosity of AHSGR’s donors, we would not be able to provide extensive resources that are both invaluable & imperative to keeping our heritage alive. We are a nonprofit organization and rely heavily on our members & donors to continue preserving our German Russian history. Please consider donating in the area of your choice.
