The dislocation and devastation caused by World War I, and more specifically the upheavals in Russia, are the major events that form the background to Miller’s diary of 1920-21. The Russian Revolution of 1917 marked a new era of suffering and loss for Mennonite settlers in South Russia, with villages and colonies overrun repeatedly by Red and White armies and occasionally sacked by the anarchist forces.
The Russian Mennonites were starving because of the famine and war. So, in 1919, they began reaching out to their European and North American co-religionists for help. A delegation of four representatives arrived in North America in June 1920 and brought their appeal to various Mennonite groups. In response, the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) was founded in July 1920, with Miller as founder and leader, to represent combined Mennonite relief efforts for South Russia.
Learn how Orie O. Miller and his compatriots respond to the Russian Mennonites’ call for help. Know his thoughts about his mission and thoughts about the plight of his co-religionists in South Russia. Order “The Orie O. Miller Diary, 1920-1921” today on
