TALK | Lunch in Translation: A midday series with Yiddish translators. | Yermiyahu Ahron Taub

Recorded Live Via Zoom May 3, 2022

Yermiyahu Ahron Taub discusses his latest work in translation, Dineh: An Autobiographical Novel by Ida Maze. The program will include a short introduction and reading from the work followed by a Q&A.

Available in English-translation for the first time, Dineh, posthumously published, is autobiographical Yiddish-language novel by Ida Maze (1893-1962.) Dineh is a pastorale laced in beauty and sorrow and a bildungsroman told from the point of view of a young girl. Set entirely in what is now Belarus, Maze’s eponymous heroine is fueled by her hunger for learning, connection to family and community, and love of the natural world.

Presented as part of the Yiddish Book Center's 2022 Decade of Discovery: Women in Yiddish.
