Treffen Tuesday

Meet Adam Schell, a 96-year-old Volga German man born in the village of Seewald. His life experience has been shaped by the history of all Germans from Russia in the Soviet Union in the 20th century. He lived through the famine of the 1930s, the 1941 deportation of the Volga Germans, and the consequent persecution and limitation of rights for all Soviet citizens of German descent. After 25 years in western Siberia, he relocated his family to his Volga German homeland in 1966. He lived in Frank, Russia, until he emigrated to Germany at age 71 in the late 1990s. In this presentation, Adam will discuss various topics related to his family’s history. Register.
