WE (NEVER) DON'T FORGET GERMANS FROM RUSSIA IN SOUTH AMERICA - produced by Prairie Public Broadcasting and North Dakota State University Libraries, 2015. Like North America before the turn of the 1900s, South America was a land of opportunity a magnet of immigration from Europe and Asia. Many of these immigrants were directly related to Germans from Russia in the United States and Canada. They were a mixture of Black Sea Germans, Volga Germans, Volhynian Germans, Bessarabian Germans, and Mennonites. We (Never) Don't Forget Germans from Russia in South America examines the history, language, music, religion, foodways, and culture of this ethnic group and chronicles how these traditions are flourishing across generations.
