Immigrants - Whitsun people in the new land

A few hundred years ago a lot of Germans went to Russia to settle there.

Nowadays a lot of them want to come back to theVillage Guntersblum land of their ancestors, because they feel oppressed in cases of religion and language. Since Gorbatschow, they get the permission to leave.

During the last years a million of them came to Germany. A case of luck made it possible, that 200 members from a vilage Tschugujewka in Sibiria could keep together. All of them settled in Guntersblum a small village near Frankfurt.
