Packing for Canada

Mar 15 6:30PM

What did Mennonites pack when they left the Soviet Union for Canada in the 1920s? What does this tell about them, their families, and their communities? Archivists Laureen Harder-Gissing (Mennonite Archives of Ontario), Conrad Stoesz (Mennonite Heritage Archives), and Richard Thiessen (Mennonite Heritage Museum) explored the meaning of Russlaender material culture in this webinar presentation.

Sponsored by the Paul Toews Professorship Fund and the Centre for Transnational Mennonite Studies.
