[Zionism - First Ed.] Dr. Theodor Herzl
This listing is an independent item not part of any collection
First Hebrew edition. 16 pp., 174:114 mm., nice margins, light age staining, stamps. A good copy bound in modern boards.
Hebrew translation of Herzl's Der Baseler Congress (Vienna 1897). Herzl's aims and goals for the First Zionist Congress, held in Basle on Aug. 29–31, 1897. It was the first interterritorial gathering of Jews on a national and secular basis. The congress adopted the program of the Zionist movement, which came to be known as the Basle Program, and established the World Zionist Organization as the political organization of the "Jewish people en route." Herzl chaired the First Congress (as he did the five subsequent congresses held in his lifetime) and was elected president of the World Zionist Organization, retaining that office until his death. In spite of a heart disease, which grew worse as a result of overwork and strain, and notwithstanding the attacks upon him by opponents within the Zionist Organization and outside of it, Herzl persevered in his dedication to two principal aims: "The establishment of a national home for the Jewish people in Erez Israel," as formulated in the Basle Program, with the agreement of the Powers and of Turkey to be achieved by diplomatic negotiations; and building and strengthening the World Zionist Organization in order to create an instrument that would carry weight in the political and financial negotiations with external factors and would be capable of carrying out the settlement of Erez Israel.
