Hutterite colonies subject of talk at Elizabethtown College's Young Center
E-town grad featured speaker
E-town grad Ryan Long will discuss the challenges facing Hutterite colonies during World War I in a free lecture. "Communal Peace during World War I" takes place at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23, in Bucher Meetinghouse at Elizabethtown College's Young Center. The 2011 religious studies graduate will talk about how the Hutterites used war events to strengthen their identity and reconnect to their history. These actions secured their future as a separate communal society in North America.
