  • Jewish Pioneers Of Otter Tail County
    December 9th, 2020 @ 6:30 pm

    Of the many immigrant groups who have chosen Otter Tail County as their home, one of the most poignant histories is that of the Jewish pioneers who settled here. Their journeys from Europe to West Central Minnesota tell us about hard work, heartbreak, resilience and success. Names like Friedman, Braufman, Sigelman, Desky and more are written into the history of Otter Tail County and Minnesota.
