1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Helena Nachtigal McMillan on June 18 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had been searching for ancestors of my Nachtigal heritage. Running into a brick wall, I decided to try using a message board on ancestry.com. I gave some information as to names , years, birthplace , and great grandparents.After a year and a half, I was contacted by Jakob Konrad from Germany.His parents and I are second cousins. He told me about the above book and here I have discovered what happened after my grandparents left Russia in 1925. My grandmother was Susanna Konrad, who married David Nachtigal from the Crimea. Anne Konrad, I find, must be my second cousin. I had no idea of the whereabouts of any of Grandma Konrad Nachtigal family members. This book is brutally honest, and shares the truths of the persecution under Stalin. The accounts of the Revolution and WW1 dovetail with accounts my own parents were able to share. The Crimean Peninsula had been a beautiful place to live, but when I asked my father if he'd like to see it again, he said" what for? There's nothing left!" His family had owned two flour mills in More. One operated by wind, one by steam. They had lived in Borongar and Spat as well, so must have been friends of the Konrads. An excellent book, but I would like the other book Anne wrote. "..And in Their Silent Beauty Speak...a Mennonite Family in Russia and Canada 1790- 1990". It must be a more in depth look at the family with pictures, since I have a copy of a picture that also appeared in her book.

Informative and compelling May 31 2012
By torontoreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book represents a great accomplishment. Anne Konrad has spent many years researching the fate of her Mennonite relatives during the lunacy of Stalin's Russia. The tragic outcomes linger to this day in the lives of the descendants of her family members who were persecuted because of their religion. The author's clear prose style and personal connection to the story make the book difficult to put down. The family trees at the beginning of the book aid the reader in keeping track of the many family members who appear in the story.
