Story from FATE OF THE GERMAN BAPTIST PASTORS: Russian Volhynia, 1929-1938

Pastore Wilhelm Schmidgall "fled to Kharkov in Eastern Ukraine in 1934 where he concealed himself as a night watchman on a collective farm. He was eventually tracked down in 1936 and arrested and brought to trial. He was given five years, but apparently died in prison before the sentence could be carried out. Family: wife, Karoline, and seven children, Wilhelm, Emilia, Luisa, Emma, Lillie, Adella and Edgar. Karoline retreated with the German Army in 1943 and in 1945 was repatriated to the Beresniki in the Ural Mts. She died of tuberculosis in 1952."
