Birobidzhan—a region in Russia's far east which during the Soviet period was the location for an ill-fated Soviet project to create a secular Jewish territory—is normally relegated to the rank of odd footnote to broader narratives of Jewish history. Masha Gessen uses the 20th-century history of the region, and the career of the Yiddish-language author and cultural activist David Bergelson, to look at the history of Russian Jewry.

Accuse your enemies of being pediphiles is the play. Outlaw and demonize homosexuals is the play. Oppress women in the name of promoting family values is the play. Russia is a traumatized country in a suicidal death spiral, and we are not far behind.… (més)
