From 1930 until 1942 the Rahn family experienced and recorded the events in their village during the period of dekulakization and collectivization. These are not the letters of exceptional individuals but merely of people desperately trying to survive and even seeking, usually under duress, to contribute to the new system through their work and energy. Editor Peter Rahn’s lucid commentary on the letters and the history of dekulakization provides us with a comprehensive portrait of one family during a significant time in Mennonite history.
