Journal, Vol. 05, No. 2 – Summer 1982

Cover: The words and melody of “Wie schoen ist das laendliche Leben,” a favorite song of Germans from Russia, adorn the cover of this issue.


Klaus Hoffmann continues the theme in his commentary on “Songs of the Germans From Russia.”

Timothy J. Kloberdanz describes the Volga German adaptation to the Russian steppes, the North American prairies, and the Argentine pampas in his “Plainsmen of Three Continents.”

A new series begins with this issue as Jacob Hieb tells of “My Return to Russia.”

The remaining articles in this issue are continuations of series begun in preceding issues. They include: “History of AHSGR” and “Villages in Which Our Forefathers Lived” (the villages of the Rastadt and Mannheim Districts) by Adam Giesinger; “Aus Heimat und Leben” by David Weigum, translated by Leona Pfeifer; “The Diary of Jacob Epp 1860-1880” by John B. Toews; “The Village Blacksmith, Ferdinand Wolf” from Wolhynisches Tagebuch, translated by Sally T. Hieb; “List of Volga German Refugees Who Arrived at Frankfurt on the Oder From Minsk on December 9, 1922” and “Books and Articles Recently Added to the AHSGR Archives,” both by Emma S. Haynes.
