A new coffee table book brimming with vivid photos and stories of Russian Mennonite hardship and perseverance will be launched Monday in Steinbach.
The Russian Mennonite Story: the Heritage Cruise Lectures, a 100-page book containing the work of the late history professor Paul Toews, will be introduced by historians Royden Loewen and Aileen Friesen at 7 p.m. in the Mennonite Heritage Village auditorium.
Toews, an American Fulbright Scholar and director of Fresno Pacific University’s Centre for Mennonite Brethren Studies in California, was for 16 years the resident historian on the popular Mennonite Heritage Cruise, an annual passenger ship journey to Ukraine.
The book, published earlier this year, is the product of the University of Winnipeg’s Centre for Transnational Mennonite Studies, which Loewen chairs.
Friesen, a professor at Conrad Grebel University College in Waterloo, Ont. who helped compile the book, will speak about the three-part lecture series by Toews that comprises the book’s core.
