Mennonites in Mexico Volume 1

Book, 1996
Borrowed Items Ship free with Membership
In 1997 the Mennonites in Mexico marked their 75th anniversary since arriving there from Canada in 1922. There is no comprehensive history that tells their story and to a large extent the mostly Old Colony people there who now number over 45,000, prefer to remain the "Stille im Lande" (quiet in the land). Little has been written about them.

Art has not been an acceptable form of expression in the Mennonite colonies in Mexico in the past and that is why this rare collection is an important celebration of the lifestyle of the people.

Unger de Peters is not a trained artist. She grew up in Kronsfeld in the Manitoba Colony near Cuauhtemoc, Chihuahua, Mexico and as a child drew pictures of events and people around her. She has captured the lifestyle of her people in these drawings with brief descriptions.
