"Germans From Russia On The Canadian Prairies
– Then & Now"
Germans from Russia carried their traditions, culture and language
across two continents and an ocean. Upon the invitation from
Catherine the Great, the vast steppes of Russia came under their
plow. Nearly one hundred years later, their descendants immigrated
to North America, breaking sod on the Canadian Prairies. This CD
describes how they not only survived, but thrived, and is a
testament to their grit, determination and resourcefulness. HEAR
THE UNIQUE DIALECT, SEE "SHOEBOX" PHOTOS, LISTEN TO TRADITIONAL
SONGS, PHRASES AND PERSONAL STORIES – SOME WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH,
OTHERS MAY MAKE YOU CRY, AS YOU ARE TAKEN BACK TO A TIME THAT IS
SLOWLY FADING AWAY. This production was a volunteer project filmed
in Alberta and Saskatchewan, with profits donated to the Germans
from Russia Heritage and Historical Societies. To order copies of
