Dineh: An Autobiographical Novel

Hosted By: YIVO

Ida Maze’s autobiographical novel Dineh is a haunting portrait of her rural, village, and small-town life in White Russia (now Belarus) at the turn of the 20th century. Dineh’s story is interwoven with portraits of other people, chiefly women and girls, in her community. The novel examines the lives of women, including class stratification, thwarted romance, violence (domestic, state-instigated, and otherwise), and the perils of childbirth. In addition to exploring relations between Jews and non-Jews, Maze’s novel touches on Tsarist anti-Semitism, restrictions on Jewish economic survival, and the rising tide of revolutionary movements.

Originally published in Yiddish, Dineh has been translated for the first time into English by Yermiyahu Ahron Taub. Join YIVO for a discussion of this publication featuring Taub in conversation with Professor Alice Nakhimovsky.
