Speaking & Signing The Fehrs: Four Centuries of Mennonite Migration (Winco Publishing)
This book documents the dramatic events in the lives of fifteen generations of Fehrs/DeFehrs. Their history can be traced back to the 16th-century Amsterdam grain merchant Gijsbert de Veer. The story is based on archival and secondary sources, and runs parallel to what ten thousands of their Mennonite brethren have experienced through time.
It is a story about heretics, martyrs, grain merchants and brandy distillers; about pioneers, farmers and industrialists. It is also about tradition and change, inflexibility and adaptation, sorrow and hope and above all about an endless search for salvation.
Arlette Kouwenhoven is a Dutch anthropologist working as a publisher and writer. From 2007 she made trips to Poland, Ukraine, Canada and Mexico documenting the history of the conservative line of the Fehr family. The book was published in Dutch in 2011 and is at its fourth printing.
