After the war, thousands fled the disaster in Germany. “Between 1919 and 1933, roughly 430,000 Germans immigrated to the United States” (German Immigration). As a result of the anti-German prejudice now extremely prevalent in the U.S., German immigrants began trying to hide their ethnicity. Many even chose to Americanize their names.

The pull factor of Canada was exemption from this service, and with help from Leo Tolstoy, a Russian novelist, and Russian anarchists, the Doukhobors settled in British Columbia. In 1899, more than 7500 Doukhobors migrated to Canada. Peter Verigin and 500 other Doukhobors joined them in 1902.
