Lightbulb Der Judenstaat


Hotel Les Trois Rois (Three King's hotel / Hotel drei Könige)
in Basel, Switzerland,
Possibly during the Sixth Zionist conference there..

The Jews' State, commonly rendered as The Jewish State is a pamphlet written by Theodor Herzl and published in February 1896 in Leipzig and Vienna by M. Breitenstein's Verlags-Buchhandlung.. It is subtitled with "Versuch einer modernen Lösung der Judenfrage", "Proposal of a modern solution for the Jewish question" and originally called "Address to the Rothschilds",referring to the Rothschild family banking dynasty, as Herzl planned to deliver it as a speech to the Rothschild family.. Baron Edmond de Rothschild rejected Herzl's plan feeling that it threatened Jews in the Diaspora..It is considered one of the most important texts of early Zionism.. As expressed in this book, Herzl envisioned the founding of a future independent Jewish state during the 20th century.. He argued that the best way to avoid antisemitism in Europe was to create this independent Jewish state..The book encouraged Jews to purchase land in Palestine, although the possibility of a Jewish state in Argentina is also considered..

I feel ancient around these kids..

like I'm on some Children's Crusade...

Therefore I believe that a wondrous generation of Jews will spring into existence.. The Maccabeans will rise again..

Let me repeat once more my opening words: The Jews who wish for a State will have it..

We shall live at last as free men on our own soil, and die peacefully in our own homes..

The world will be freed by our liberty, enriched by our wealth, magnified by our greatness..

And whatever we attempt there to accomplish for our own welfare, will react powerfully and beneficially for the good of humanity..

The Maccabees were a group of Jewish rebel warriors that took control of Judea, which at the time had been a part of the Seleucid Empire..2 Maccabees and 4 Maccabees recount the martyrdom of se7en Jewish brothers, their mother and their teacher.. The woman with se7en sons was a Jewish martyr described in 2 Maccabees 7 and other sources.. Although unnamed in 2 Maccabees, she is known variously as Hannah, Miriam, and Solomonia..Various mystery plays in the Middle Ages portrayed the Maccabean martyrs, and depictions of their martyrdom possibly gave rise to the term "macabre", perhaps derived from the Latin Machabaeorum-Theodore is a masculine given name.. It comes from the Greek name (Theodoros) meaning "god-given" (from the Greek words (theos) "god" hand (doron) "gift")..

Theodor Herzl was born (May 2, 1860) in Tabak Gasse, a street in the Jewish quarter of Pest (now eastern part of Budapest), Kingdom of Hungary, to a secular Jewish family..His father's family were originally from Zimony (today Zemun, Serbia).. He was the second child of Jeanette and Jakob Herzl, who were German-speaking, assimilated Jews..Jakob Herzl (1836–1902), Herzl's father, was a highly successful businessman..Herzl had one sister, Pauline, a year older than he was, who died suddenly on February 7, 1878, of Typhus..Theodor lived with his family in a house next to the Dohány Street Synagogue (Tabakgasse Synagogue) located in Belváros, the inner city of the historical old town of Pest, in the eastern section of Budapest..As a youth, Herzl aspired to follow in the footsteps of Ferdinand de Lesseps, builder of the Suez Canal, but did not succeed in the sciences and instead developed a growing enthusiasm for poetry and the Humanities..In 1878, after the death of his sister, Pauline, the family moved to Vienna, Austria-Hungary, and lived in the 9th district, Alsergrund.. At the University of Vienna, Herzl studied law.. As a young law student, Herzl became a member of the German nationalist Burschenschaft (fraternity) Albia, which had the motto Ehre, Freiheit, Vaterland ("Honor, Freedom, Fatherland")..After a brief legal career in the University of Vienna and Salzburg, he devoted himself to journalism and literature, working as a journalist for a Viennese newspaper and a correspondent for Neue Freie Presse, in Paris, occasionally making special trips to London and Istanbul..Herzl opposed the efforts already made by Zionist groups to settle Jews in Ot-toman-controlled Palestine by arguing that "important experiments in colonization have been made, though on the mistaken principle of a gradual infiltration of Jews..For that reason, Herzl, both in Der Judenstaat, and in his political activity on behalf of Zionism, concentrated his efforts on securing official legal sanction from the Ottoman authorities..Oktoechos (here transcribed "Octoechos" from "eight" and "sound, mode" called echos... could have given you the world...
