Schoenfeld Colony  (p. 112)


The Schoenfeld Colony, also known as Brazol Colony, consisted of fifteen or more scattered settlements. Beginning in 1868 individuals and groups or clans from both Chortitza and Molotschna purchased estates that in time evolved into villages. The village of Blumenhof, now called Zalivnoye, developed adjacent to the Brazol estate. The village of Rosenhof (see map 110) that was located about thirty-five kilometers east of Alexandrovsk (Zaporozhye) was also part of the Schoenfeld settlement. The administrative centre was in the village of Schoenfeld.

Nestor Makhno was born in Gulaya Pole.
