        The Germans from Russia | Changes in Russia and Immigration to North America

        In this clip, Germans from Russia hear of the opportunity in America, and begin to realize that if they stay in Europe they may lose their German autonomy and be blended into the Russian culture. Although leaving is difficult, some say as hard as a death, they begin their journey from the land-locked country they have known and board ships towards the Americas for a difficult journey. The Germans from Russia: Children of the Steppe, Children of the Prairie is the story of the Germans from Russia -- agricultural pioneers on several continents whose quest for land and peace shaped them into a distinctive and enduring ethnic group.
