where i ve been

Where I’ve been

In 1878, we moved to Vienna and I grew up there.

I went to a Jewish grade school, local high school, and studied law at the University of Vienna. At the university, I experienced anti-Semitism for the first time.

Later, I worked in Germany. While in Germany, I wrote stories and plays, got married, and had 3 children

I was not happy with law. I moved to Paris France and became a journalist. I wrote articles in newspapers.

when i started helping israel
When I started helping Israel
  • In 1894, I was waiting outside a military court room in Paris, France. The crowd was there to find out whether Alfred Dreyfus, a Jewish officer, was going to be found guilty of spying for Germany.
  • I heard a man shout ‘’Death to the Jews’’ and I realized that the Jews needed a homeland of their own. Immediately I set to work. I gave speeches, wrote articles in newspapers, and I wrote books. All hoping to get the word out about Zion (another name for Israel.) I had a dream!
  • Thousands of Jewish people saw what I did and wanted to help me. They called themselves Zionists.

Zionist Congress

  • I created the first Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland. In 1897, delegates from all over the world attended.
  • I became the first President.
  • I used my good writing skills to convince wealthy Jews to support my idea of a Jewish land with good agriculture, technology and science.
  • I worked very hard for a Jewish state.
  • I didn’t get to see it, but my dream became a reality in 1948.
