FARGO – Michael M. Miller, director of the North Dakota State Libraries’ Germans from Russia Heritage Collection, is traveling to Brazil in April for the final filming and interviews for a new documentary on Germans from Russia in South America.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many Germans from Russia immigrated to South America at the same time other German-Russian families were immigrating to North Dakota and the northern Plains. Many of the Germans from Russia in Argentina and Brazil have relatives in Canada and the United States.

The film is produced in partnership with Prairie Public Broadcasting and will be the eighth documentary of Prairie Public’s Germans from Russia series.
