German Russian Church Service  DSC8198 - German-Russian Social, Cultural & Heritage History
This church service was conducted in 1942 in the community of Josefstal. This church was located in the district of Dnjepropetrowsk. Note all the women parishioners are wearing curtchiefs or in German they were called, "halstiecher". It is interesting to note that many of the ladies represented were older, while there were few children present. Where were the men? Since it was the custom among these German-Russian church-goers, the women sat on the left side, while the men sat on the right side. Since it appears that the picture was taken of those seated on the left, that would explain "why" we don't see the men in this picture.
