"Life Under Tyranny"
by Peter Goldade Review by: Peter Goldade
This important work is based on a mountain of previously unpublished material the author obtained mostly from the State Archives of Odessa Region located in Odessa, Ukraine. Almost all of the documents pertain to the German-Russian Kutschurgan Colonies, especially Selz, Elsass, Baden, Strassburg, and Kandel, but other documents concern Mannheim and little known Kutschurgan villages and khutors. Also included are some stray villages like Alexanderfeld in the Liebental Colony Group.
