Nedinge or Nedzinge (Lith.)

In Yiddish, Nedzing

Written by Josef Rosin

Translated by Shaul Yannai

A county town in the Alytus district, 12 km south of Daugai. In 1886, there were 20 Jews among the town's 72 residents. In 1923, the town had 111 residents, with 49 Jews among them. In 1931, the town had a cloth shop that was owned by Jews.

In 1929, 9 Shekalim (tokens of membership in the Zionist organization) were bought in the town. In 1933, 4 people voted to the 19th Zionist Congress. In 1935, 3 people voted for the Eretz-Yisrael HaOveded party. Nedinge is also mentioned in the 1938 list of Jewish artisans in Lithuania. In June, 1941, when Germany conquered Lithuania, the fate of the Jews of Nedinge was the same as the fate of the Jews in the surrounding areas. All of them were murdered during the autumn of 1941 by Lithuanians who were active in the ranks of the German occupying authorities.
