Subject: Thanksgiving and Remembrance Event - August 28th
Date: Mon, 22 Aug 2005 19:05:05 -0700
The Oregon Chapter of the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia
will hold a Thanksgiving and Remembrance Event commemorating the
German-Russian victims of genocide at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 28, 2005
at the Rivercrest Community Church in Portland. The Rivercrest Church is
located at 3201 NE 148th Avenue.
On August 28, 1941, the Soviet government issued a formal decree that led to
the oppression, deportation and death of hundreds of thousands of people,
including members of nearly every German-Russian family. As a result, August
28th has become the International German-Russian Day of Remembrance and
events are planned in USA, Russia and Germany.
Dr. Samuel Sinner will be the featured speaker at the event in Portland. Dr.
Sinner is the author of the book "The Open Wound. The Genocide of Russian
and Soviet German Ethnic Minorities, 1915-1945 and Beyond" and several other
titles on the German Russians. Dr. Sinners books can be purchased at the
AHSGR and the NDSU Germans from Russia Heritage Collection web sites. Dr.
Sinners Curriculum Vitae can be seen at:
Everyone is welcome to join us for this event. There is no charge for
