History of the Volga German Colonists

History of the Volga German Colonists

by Jacob E. Dietz
American Historical Society of Germans from Russia

Originally written in Russian, translated into German and now English. The author, a German Russian himself gives the reader an insight into how the colonists lived and the many challenges they faced. This book is a fascinating documentation of the history, lives, economics and politics of their times. Historians have long known of the existence of the manuscript of Jacob Dietz, which has been included in a series of bibliographic guides, but its location was long unknown. It was found only a few years ago in the Engels branch of the State Archive of the Saratov Oblast.
