ND documentary on Germans from Russia wins award

FARGO — A documentary produced by Prairie Public Broadcasting in cooperation with a North Dakota State University collection on Germans from Russia has been honored in an independent television competition.

NDSU officials say the video "At Home in Russia, at Home on the Prairie" is one of 27 documentaries in the country to receive an Aurora Award. It received Platinum Best of Show in the historical category.

Michael Miller, director of the NDSU Libraries' Germans from Russia Heritage Collection, says the documentary shows the lives of Germans from Russia after their journey to the Northern Plains, including North Dakota.

Miller and Bob Dambach, director of television at Prairie Public Broadcasting, produced the documentary.
