The Legacy of German Jewry

This chapter discusses the dual legacy of German writer Theodor Herzl for the German Jewry. His first recognition of the Jewish problem and the reality of anti-Semitism came in November 1894 after witnessing the humiliation of Captain Alfred Dreyfus. He also realized that the Jewish problem required a political solution. After this, Herzl engineered the “new exodus to Egypt” and composed the The Jewish State to spur the Jewish masses into action. He negotiated with various governments to have a place for the Jews to relocate, and thus brought the Jews into world politics.
