Description
   Title: Stenographisches Protokoll der Verhandlungen des II. Zionisten-Congresses gehalten zu Basel von 28. bis 31. August 1898.

This volume contains the stenographic minutes of the Second Zionist Congress held in Basel in 1898. At this Congress, the foundations were laid for the establishment of the Jewish Colonial Trust, a financial body aimed at the development of Palestine. It was also at this Congress that a group of Socialists first appeared demanding representation within the Zionist leadership. In the face of a more active opposition to Zionism from amongst various Jewish leaders, Herzl called on the Congress to “conquer the communities.” In essence, this was a demand that the Zionist movement focus its attention not only on political activity for Palestine but also on work within the Jewish communities.

The Zionist Organization published 20 volumes of these minutes from 1898-1937.
