Called by the Czars, banned by the Soviets, the Russian-Germans are well portrayed in this book with outstanding, dramatic historical black and white photographs. Bernd Längin blends these photo images with the important story about the various Germans from Russia ethnic groups. The author paints a picture of the rise and fall of a German minority under the Double Eagle and the Soviet Star. With an effectively unknown fate, a history is recalled before all traces of the German generations on the Volga, in Ukraine, in the Caucasus, Bessarabia, and Volhynia are completely obliterated.
