Nordheim (Marinovka), a village in the Memrik settlement in the province of Ekaterinoslav, Russia (now Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, Ukraine), was settled in 1885 by 32 landless and poor Mennonites from the Molotschna and Chortitza settlements. At first the inhabitants had hardly enough to shelter them from the cold and rain, but in a few years they became prosperous through industrious cultivation of a basically good soil. In 1887 the village built a school. In 1912 it had a population of 203.
