Nikolaifeld (Nikolaipol) was a village in which the administration (volost) of the Yazekovo Mennonite settlement, near Chortitza, Russia, was located. The village was established in 1869 and had 4,300 acres of land in 1918, and under the Soviet regime as a collective farm 2,650 acres. In 1914 the population was 221; in 1941 it was 610. Thirteen persons were murdered in 1919, three starved to death in 1933-1934, and 113 were exiled during 1929-1941. During the German occupation of the Ukraine in 1941-1943 the economic and cultural life was somewhat revived. When the Germans withdrew, the population was evacuated to Germany, whence probably half of it was returned to Russia by the Russian army, and the other half found its way to America.
