    The Echo of 19th Century Anti-Semitism: TFJ The Birth of Israel

    The Echo of 19th Century Anti-Semitism: TFJ The Birth of Israel

    Bowing to pressure, in 1906 the French military cleared Dreyfuss and had him readmitted to the army. After centuries of discrimination and expulsions, Zionism becomes a revolution to afford Jews a land that they may call home. Story of the voyage of the damned: the SS St. Louis.

    The Silver Lining of Herzl’s Fundraising Fiasco; TFJ The Birth of Israel

    The Silver Lining of Herzl’s Fundraising Fiasco; TFJ The Birth of Israel

    Generous Baron Maurice de Hirsch refused to contribute to Herzl’s plan which he considered a fantasy. Eventually, as Daniel Gordis points out, this turned out to be a blessing in disguise for Herzl. “Better luck next time” wasn’t an option, and the need to improve resulted in Der Judenstaat. When things look catastrophic there is often a silver lining, case in point: The Auschwitz Protocols. As Dreyfuss languishes on Devil’s island, Emil Zola comes to his rescue by publishing, J’accuse. The most important work on sparking antisemitism,  the fictitious Protocols of the Elders of Zion, finds an enthusiastic supporter and disseminator in America, car magnate, Henry Ford.

    Never Trust Your Chambermaid: TFJ Birth of Israel

    Never Trust Your Chambermaid: TFJ Birth of Israel

    Hatikva is unique among national anthems. A maid employed by the French military found a memo in the trash in the German embassy in Paris with military secrets. The French Minister of War connected the document – despite not a shred of evidence – to a Jewish artillery captain, Alfred Dreyfuss, who subsequently was convicted of spying and denounced as a traitor. This set off anti-Jewish rioting, similar to blood libels, which also made no sense, but were lethal and costly for innocent Jewish victims. This was a tipping point for a reporter covering the trial named Theodore Herzl.
