Unlike most other Mennonite regions in the the 19th century, there were no specific colonies in Crimea, but there were certainly many interesting people and a number of institutions in both the villages and the estates. This book is the story of those people and the institutions they created. As such, Crimea represents a microcosm of Mennonite history.
