This chapter presents an interview with Yudl Mark, focusing on the problems inherent in the autonomous experiment in Lithuania. Mark was a young Folkist politician who later became an important Yiddish folklorist and philologist. The interview itself refers to the period after the First World War, when Lithuania was the scene of the most far-reaching attempt to put into practice the principle of non-territorial Jewish autonomy. This experiment was accompanied by high hopes in the Jewish world. Given the mixed character of the area, Jewish national autonomy would also make the state more attractive to Belarusians and Germans who might be incorporated into it.

Keywords:   Jewish autonomy, inter-war Lithuania, Jewish national autonomy, Yudl Mark, autonomous experiment, non-territorial Jewish autonomy, interview
