Scope and content

This photo is of Heinrich Enns, brother to Olga Enns’ father Gerhard Enns is with another man in the forest. Heinrich is probably the one standing behind the other man, to the right of the man holding the horse. This photo could be related to his Alternative Service during WW I, or, his work as an evangelist. Heinrich Enns worked as an evangelist during the chaotic times of the 1920s when preaching was forbidden. Because of this he was hunted down by the Bolsheviks, suffering severely because of this to the point of death. The Mennonites asked the Bolsheviks to finally leave him alone. He was brought to a house where he could die in peace. He died in the late 1920s when Olga’s family was already living in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.
