(p.xlvi) (p.1) Menachem Mendel Frieden’s Apologia
A Jewish Life on Three Continents

Lee Shai Weissbach

Stanford University Press

Frieden’s apologia recounts his inner impulse to record all that was preserved in his memory about his own life and that of his family, which encompasses the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth. Though a Lithuanian Jew set into a life of migration as a result of the Lithuanian Diaspora, Frieden concedes that his account does not aspire nor does it pretend to provide new insights concerning Jewish life during this historic migration. Instead, he is interested mainly in the life of his own family members—an interest motivated by a profound lack of recorded history from generations past.
