Inhaltsangabe: The story of "1937" presents in the most painfully stark outline what this mini-holocaust came to mean for Mennonites in particular. This book is written to counter the flow of history. It is said that "When the eye-witnesses, perpetrators and victims are all dead, the real story of a crime dies too." This book is dedicated to the truth of what happened, and to those who suffered as a result of the atrocities inflicted. The real story of this crime cannot be allowed to die!
About the Author: Helmut T Huebert is a semi-retired orthopaedic surgeon practicing in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was born in Alberta, but then as a boy moved from place to place during the time his father intermittently taught Bible school and received further education. In 1948 the family moved to Winnipeg, where Huebert obtained his highschool, university and most of his medical education. While actively pursuing his chosen profession, he also has a deep commitment to Jesus Christ. This has been expressed by his participation in his local congregation, the Portage Ave Church (Mennonite Brethren), as well as provincial, national and international boards. He has also been involved in 20 short term foreign medical assignments. One of Huebert's longstanding interests is history, particularly that of his own heritage, Mennonite history. He has published "Heirschau: An example of Russian Mennonite Life" (1986), "Kornelius Martens: Our Skillful Advocate" (1986), "Events and People: Events in Russian Mennonite History and the People that Made Them Happen" (1999), "Molotschna Historical Atlast" (2003, "Mennonite Estates in Imperial Russia" (2005), Mennonites in the Cities of Imperial Russia Vol 1" (2006), and "Mennonites in the Cities of Imperial Russia Vol 2" (2008). Together with William Schroeder of Winnipeg he has published "Mennonite Historical Atlas" (1996), which by Canadian standards is a best seller (over 6,500 sold). This book, detailing the events of 1937, is of some personal interest to Huebert. Two of his own uncles were arrested that year as part of the purge; a number of people at Portage Avenue Church lost their fathers. So, while it is of general historical interest, it also represents the direct impact of history on people. Helmut and his wife Dorothy have three children, Karen, David and Susan, and four grandchildren, David, Alison, Matthew and Katherine.
