About this title

Synopsis:

FROM BOLSHEVIK RUSSIA TO AMERICA: A MENNONITE FAMILY STORY, by HENRY D. REMPLE, Foreword by PAUL TOEWS: ∑ Psychologist Henry D. Remple describes what happened to a group of German-speaking Mennonites, descendants of immigrants who had settled in the Ukraine, who were forced into emigration following the ravages of the First World War, the terrors of the subsequent Russian Revolution and Civil War, drought and famine. ∑ Six families from his tiny village became part of a movement south towards the Black Sea and Turkey. Their journey took them to Batum, Georgia, an international seaport, by 1922 filled with rampant disease and thousands of hungry refugees including several hundred Mennonites. ∑ From a family of eleven who left the village, only Henry and two sisters survived to eventually reach America, adapted to a new society, obtained education, established livelihoods and careers, and proudly raised their own families. ∑ This personal history captures the work of the Mennonite Central Committee in the USA, which guaranteed the passage across the Atlantic and travel to individual American families willing to take in the orphaned children. ∑ "In reading FROM BOLSHEVIK RUSSIA TO AMERICA: A MENNONITE FAMILY STORY", one is drawn to reflect on the human capacity to transcend difficult experiences, on the capacity to forge a new life in a strange and distant land, on the role of an ethno-religious community in providing for its own, and on the important role of the witness." ---Paul Toews, Mennonite Historian ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Henry D. Remple, PH.D., Diplomate in Clinical Psychology of the American Board of Professional Psychology, has retired from the Veteran Administration and from Private practice.
