In this interview Albert Wollman, a member of the Warden Hutterite Colony in Warden, Washington, discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted his community in 2020. Wollman discusses the agrarian community’s history dating back to 1973. He describes when he first learned about the virus, his experiences with the illness in April of 2020, and how his community was able to grow closer together through the trying times. He recalls taking a relative to the Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane, Washington, to be treated in the summer of 2020, and not being allowed to visit the hospital. He recalls the heightened fear surrounding the pandemic as his community struggled to maintain a healthy, prosperous farm. Wollman is interviewed by Jason Stahl, who was born and raised in a Hutterite colony north of Gildford, Montana.
