Recent Progress on the Book Manuscript
Right now I am working on finishing up the second draft of Catherine's Grandchildren: A Short History of the Russian-Germans under Soviet Rule. Yesterday I started revising the manuscript. Since then I have written another six pages of text bringing the total up to 158. I have mostly been adding material on the Russian-German communities in Siberia prior to World War II, particularly those in the regions of Slavgorod and Omsk. The history of these settlements during the first four decades of the 20th Century is quite fascinating.
