The Jews of Europe

By Joseph Jacobs

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 1900

Surveying developments relating to European Jewry during the Jewish calendar year 5659, the author writes that the year can be summed up in two words: Zionism and Dreyfus. It is difficult to determine what degree of progress has been made by the Zionist movement during the year, the author observes, but the creation of the Colonial Trust or Bank has been a success. The case against Captain Dreyfus has collapsed, the author reports, and he may be released soon. Other incidents relating to increases and decreases in antisemitism, or to Jewish affairs in general, are recounted vis-a-vis countries and regions including in Algiers, Vienna, Hungary, Bohemia, Galicia, Russia, Greece, Turkey, and England.
