Oral stories of Germans from Russia

Among the many personal accounts we discovered while researching Germans from Russia in our recent project, one collection has stuck in our minds. We think the Colorado State University oral archive we found is worth sharing.

CSU collected sixty personal histories between 1975 and 1978 as part of a Germans from Russia in Colorado Study Project. They have posted twenty interview transcripts and audio interviews online covering a wide range of stories about life in Russia, emigration, and early days in America.

Listen to some of their stories:

Great history here, thank you CSU!
