Consider the Threshing Stone: Writings of Jacob J. Rempel: A Mennonite in Russia, Translated by David J. Rempel Smucker and Eleanore Woollard.
"Jacob Rempel was a 1920s immigrant from Russia who served on a hospital ship during World War I, experienced the horrors of the Civil War and Machno period, and became an organizer for the emigration of Mennonites from the Molochna area in the 1920s. Consider the Threshing Stone is a collection of his writings, which the editor has organized into three chapters supplemented with an introduction, a biographical sketch, and appendices that provide additional information about the Rempel family and other names that appear in the account. The editor has also annotated the memoir with generous footnotes that together with photos and maps elaborate, explain, and provide context and corroborating sources for the narrative... David Rempel Smucker and Eleanore (Rempel) Wollard have made an important source for the Russian Mennonite story accessible to future generations, for both family and historians. The small book pays careful attention to detail and the exhaustive additional research places a small-scale story firmly within its larger context."
