Map -- The Great German Russian Pyramid
The Wolf family was murdered in April of 1920 near Turtle Lake, ND, within what is sometimes referred to as the German Russian pyramid—the area inside a line from Aberdeen, SD, to Dickinson to Rugby back to Aberdeen. Some locals call it “The Sauerkraut Triangle." Both terms refer to the high density of Germans from Russia living in the area. The Wolfs and most of their relatives and neighbors and many farmers near towns further east were German Russians, as were the main suspects in this murder.
