Lectures to commemorate Mennonite immigration

Mennonites’ experience in Prussia and Russia will be the focus of a Heritage Lectures series Oct. 11 near Goessel at Alexanderwohl Mennonite Church.

Mark Jantzen, author and associate professor of history at Bethel College, will give two presentations: “A Long Sojourn in Prussia/Poland” starts at 9 a.m. and “A Short Sojourn in Russia” follows at 10:30 a.m., after a short break.

The event is free and open to the public. It will be held in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Mennonite Heritage and Agricultural Museum, and of the 140th anniversary of the immigration of numerous Kansas Mennonites who came from Russia in 1874.
