Abstract

A hundred years after the Kishinev pogrom and the publication of H. N. Bialik's "In the City of Slaughter," the author of this paper is making his way through the streets and alleys of the city of Kishinev, now the capital of the Republic of Moldava, trying to follow Bialik's itinerary the way it is represented in the poem as well as in the poet's notes and diaries. The tour — by itself an odyssey into various layers of Jewish memory — provides a rare possibility for a re-reading of the classical poem in connection with the very place in which it has been generated.
