Lindental (Zhytomyrs’ka oblast’, Ukraine)
Lindental was a small Mennonite settlement in South Russia near the railway station Sinelnikovo, the inhabitants of which joined the Kronsweide Church after the confusions of World War I. In Lindental there were once splendid buildings and parks. Before the war there was no lack of motorized machinery on any farm; there were shops on a large scale, such as iron works and factories for the production of farm machinery. In the postwar period the thriving village decayed in the destruction that met so many other settlements. The inhabitants fled, returned, and had to flee again. One front after another passed over small Lindental, one band of robbers followed another, and so the inhabitants were robbed of all their possessions. It can be gratefully stated that no one died a violent death. But typhus claimed a number of victims here.
