Sofia Dubnov-Erlikh's memoirs cover the most dramatic period in the history of European Jewry: years 1890-1939. Born in Minsk region, brought up in Odessa, in the family of a well known Jewish historian, she came to St.-Petersburg to study at the Besstuzhev Institute and became a poet, a literary critic, a scientist, a revolutionary. In Russia and in emigration she met Blok and Briusov, Gorky and Gumilev, Zhabotisnky and Merezhkovsky, Kamenev and Lenin. Her sharp eye for a psychological detail, her literary talent, and her deep moral interpretation of historical cataclysms make the reading of her life story both exciting and enriching.
