Description

Der Wahrheitsfreund was a publication of the Krimmer Mennonite Brethren church in the United States. Its first publication came on July 28, 1915. Editors included M.B. Fast, D.M. Hofer, J.G. Barkman, J.H. Klassen, and W.W. Harms. English appeared in the publication as early as 1916, but by 1940 almost half was in English.
