This chapter discusses some figures relevant to the historical struggle of the Jewish people. In 1840, the world's entire Jewish population was 4.5 million, making up less than half of one percent of the total world population. This number could have been 75 million had the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem not been destroyed. Between 1825 and 1930, the population of countries where Jews had settled increased three and a half times, and the Jewish population in those countries increased either fivefold or ninefold.
