Guests From the US
Gaeste aus den USA
"Guests From the US, Gaeste aus den USA, von der Redaktion." Volk auf dem Weg, July 2004, 13.
Translation by Alex Herzog, Boulder, Colorado
The day following the Bundestreffen, Adolf Fetsch, national president
of the Landsmannschaft, talked with Michael M. Miller, Bob Benson
and Alton Sissell, all from the United States, about improving cooperation
between the Landsmannschaft and overseas organizations of Germans
In the course of these talks, held in the national offices of the
Landsmannschaft, the first piece of agreement was that preparations
should be made for the founding of an "International Organization
for the Germans from Russia," one in which Germans from Russia
living all over the world could get together for the purpose of
researching the culture and history of this ethnic group.
Initial priority would be given to family and ancestral origin
research -- an area in which our countrymen in the United States
have already performed considerable and exemplary work. Any reader
interested in this subject should contact the national business
Our appreciation is extended to Alex Herzog for translation
of this article.
