9781481284660: Jakob Unger: Memories

Jakob Unger was born in 1894 in Southern Russia and was witness to the fall of Imperial Russia and the Bolshevik Revolution. As a Mennonite and pacifist, he moved ever further east within Russia trying to avoid and stay ahead of the chaos arising from the regime change. In the end, he and other Mennonites felt compelled to leave Russia. The flight to freedom for Jakob and his family began as they stole across the frozen Amur River into China and ends in Paraguay. These are his stories.

About the Author:

Agnes Unger Boerner is the eleventh of thirteen children born to Jakob and Anna Unger. As a child growing up in Paraguay, these stories were often recounted, and this oral tradition was a big part of her life. Fortunately, in 1958 her father put pen to paper and wrote out, in longhand, his memories. While going back and reading his journals and published articles, Agnes realized that unless they were translated from the "old-style" German, the rich history and heritage of her family would be lost to the following generations.
