Description Information
   Two posters, 418:295 mm., age and use staining, frayed.
   Two posters, the first in Yiddish and Russian, the latter in Russian, asking the Jews to vote for the Zionist Party in "Note 6". The Russian Zionist was divided in three main trends: socialist, moderate labor, and popular democratic. The party's center in Petrograd was transferred to Kharkov after the October Revolution and from there to Kiev, which was not yet under Soviet rule. From then on the movement's activities were mainly concentrated in the Ukraine during a period filled with hope of Jewish national autonomy, but mainly dominated by the threatening storm of pogroms. Ẓe'irei Zion then played an important role as organizer of the Jewish self-defense units and of extensive cooperative enterprises. Its main activities, however, were concentrated on the pioneering aliyah movement, promoted through the He-Ḥalutz conference in Kharkov (1918).
