Pauline Wengeroff's memoirs offer a genuine insight into Jewish society in nineteenth-century Russia. Through her narrative, Wengeroff describes momentous events during a transitional period in the life of Russian Jews, whose lot and suffering have earned the sympathy of the entire civilized world. Naturally, the history, literature, and peculiarities of Russian Jews have generated so much interest worldwide. The cultural work vividly portrayed in Wengeroff's memoirs reminds one of a remark by Nicholai Gogol in his classic novel, Dead Souls, in which the hero's kibitka gallops quickly over the broad, endless plains and finally disappears in the colorless distance.
