WHY THIS PROJECT?

 

We want to raise awareness of the Mennonites and their 5 centuries of constant migration within Europe which was caused by religious persecution.

 

Who are they? What influence have they had on the societies they lived in, and what traces have they left?

What does their religion look like right now? And what is their role in today’s society ?

In this project we link historical sites and current locations. Also, a Migration Tour in the summer of 2014 will visit most of them. Through the stories told on this site we hope to introduce the Mennonites of Europe to the world and to (re)connect them with each other.
