Riassunto: This compelling memoir by Puah Rakovsky (1865-1955) presents the experiences of a Jewish woman in late 19th- and early 20th-century Poland who broke with her traditional upbringing to become a professional educator, Zionist activist, and feminist leader. Her passionate account offers unprecedented insights into the life experience of East European Jewry in a period of massive social change. Published in the original Yiddish in 1954, the work appears here in English for the first time, annotated and with a historical introduction by Paula E. Hyman. Born into a prominent rabbinic family in 1865 under the Russian Empire, Rakovsky witnessed the flourishing of a variety of radical political movements, the birth of Zionism, and the devastation of World War I. No mere bystander, she was an activist who assumed leadership roles in the public arenas of education and politics: she founded the first Jewish girls' school in Warsaw and a national Jewish women's organisation in 1920s Poland. In her memoir, Rakovsky reflects on the position of Jewish women in her time and gives her personal and political perspective on central events of modern Jewish history from her childhood until her emigration to the Land of Israel in 1935.

L'autore: Paula E. Hyman is the Lucy Moses Professor of Modern Jewish History at Yale University. Among her many publications are The Jewish Woman in America (Sonya Michel and Charlotte Baum, co-authors) and Gender and Assimilation in Modern Jewish History. She is coeditor (with Deborah Dash Moore) of Jewish Women in America: An Historical Encyclopedia, which won the Dartmouth Medal of the American Librarians Association.
