Three Groups, One Story: Freeman Film Captures Story of Local Immigrant

Featured in The Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan

The  German-Russians were often treated like strangers in their own land.  After moving from country to country, many of them settled in the  Freeman area of southeast South Dakota. The German-Russians included  three Anabaptist groups — Hutterite, Swiss Amish and Low German  Mennonites — who arose from the Protestant Reformation of the 1500s.
