Unidentified men

This photo shows six young men -- all neatly dressed in black pants and shirts, and shiny boots. J.P. Dyck, narrator of the slide presentation used this photo to speak about the experience of non-resistant Mennonite boys during the implementation of communism in Russia. All boys born in 1901 were first called for 1 1/2 years of service [at age 21] and then those born in 1902. They were assigned hard labour or prison sentences.
