Available in English translation for the first time, DINEH, posthumously published, is an 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.
