Celebrating the
250th Anniversary
of the First
Volga German Colonies
Saturday, 9 August 2014
Concordia University Bell Tower on the Campus Green
      This year marks the 250th Anniversary of the founding of the first five German colonies along the Volga River in Russia: Anton, Beideck, Dobrinka, Galka, and Schilling. The Center for Volga German Studies at Concordia University is hosting a conference on the campus of Denver Lutheran High School in Parker, Colorado, in celebration of these anniversaries! This conference will include sessions on each of these colonies, but will focus on Beideck because of the number of descendants from Beideck who live in Colorado and the surrounding states.
