Christmas cheer in a bleak time




In 1929, the local people hosted a Christmas celebration for the Mennonite refugees in the camp in then-Hammerstein, Germany (now Czarne, Poland). A few months later, these families who had fled persecution and deprivation in Soviet Russia moved on to carve out new lives in Brazil and Paraguay.
