Here is a picture of Hilda Epp visiting with Rita Pankratz and her great-granddaughter in "Alexanderkrone." We had a great visit with her. She has been quite sick with an infection in her leg. The windmill is located right beside her home in Alexanderkrone. It is the last remaining example of a standing Mennonite windmill in Molotschna.

I have read in our Dyck family book that my great, great, great Grandfather helped build windmills in this area, and lived in this village with his extended family. It is a real treat to see this close up picture of this last remaining windmill.
