Living in the Past
Project info

The Mennonite religion was formed during the protestant reformation in Europe around the sixteenth century. Anabaptist and Pacifist believe that they will only reach paradise living a simple life due to their beliefs, they were persecuted throughout their existence, causing them to migrate from Switzerland to Russia, Canada and then to South America. Today there are thousands of colonies spread across countries such as Paraguay, Brazil and Bolivia, where they live the same way they lived almost 500 years ago. With few luxuries, they lead a simple and quiet life, away from cars, music or any other kind of technology.
