Borozenko Mennonite Settlement (Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Ukraine)
Borozenko Mennonite Settlement, founded in 1865-1866 by Mennonites from the Chortitza colony on land purchased by themselves; the post office was Nikopol; the area 6,137 desiatinas (ca. 18,000 acres). It contained six villages: Nikolaital, Schöndorf, Felsenbach, Steinbach, Ebenfeld, and Blumenhof; population in 1910 was 600 with 120 families.
The settlement made satisfactory economic progress. As a congregation they were served in their baptismal and communion services by the elder of the old Chortitza settlement; but they later joined the Neu-Chortitza congregation, for they were located nearer to the latter.
The school system of Borozenko was very similar to that of Baratov. Since the parents wished to keep their children on the farm, very few were sent to the Zentralschule.
World War I and its aftermath devastated these villages. Steinbach (and presumably Ebenfeld) was slaughtered off almost completely in a single night, and the bandits caused much depredation in the other villages. The settlement was, however, somewhat negligent in the matter of emigration; they finally left the locality; particulars are not known. It is to be assumed that this settlement was completely destroyed in World War II.
