Sannerz House, 2004.  Photograph courtesy of the Bruderhof.  In 1920, this old villa in Sannerz, a small village in central Germany, became the first site of the Bruderhof.  In 1937 Nazi harassment forced the community to leave Sannerz, but in 2002, the group returned, re-purchased the villa and started a new community, which includes descendents of earlier residents.
