Theodor Herzl Urgently Appeals
for Funding for the 6th Zionist Congress
Typed Letter Signed. Vienna, June 6, 1903. 1 p., in German.
“According to section 33 of our Organization, the account books on
the Congress are due to close June 30th. We urgently ask that you send
your dues in today, that we might cover the money already paid out.
Without your money, the Congress’ accounts for 1902/1903 will be out of
balance and in arrears - and this is not the picture of our movement
that we wish to present.”
This urgent appeal to raise funds for the Sixth Zionist Congress was
written following the horrific Easter Sunday massacre of Jews in
It was at this Aug 1903 Congress that Herzl, in response to the pogroms
in Russia, proposed that Zionists consider establishing a homeland in
Uganda - a plan much decried and soon disavowed.
Theodor Herzl. Hungarian-born Austrian considered the
father of modern Zionism. As a journalist covering the Alfred Dreyfus
affair in 1894, Herzl determined that the solution to anti-Semitism was
the establishment of a Jewish national state. On October 15, 1894,
Captain Alfred Dreyfus, the sole Jewish member of the French Army
General Staff, was detained on charges of spying for Germany.
Unfortunately, the Dreyfus trial was confidential and no one other than
French military officers was allowed in the courtroom except for two
days; the opening day, when the court announced the alleged charges, and
the final day when the jury made its decision. After attending both
sessions, Herzl became convinced of Dreyfus’s innocence. Puzzled by the
trial, he researched Dreyfus, trying to decipher a motive the captain
would have to spy for Germany. Herzl deduced that the sole reason for
the accusation against Dreyfus was that he was a Jew; this conclusion
contributed to his belief that anti-Semitism was unavoidable. Herzl
firmly believed that the only solution was for Jews to immigrate to
their own land. In 1896, Herzl published Der Judenstaadt which
argued that the Jewish problem was essentially a political one that
required a political solution – the establishment of a Jewish State. One
year later, he convened the First Zionist Congress in Basel,
Switzerland, where he boldly declared that “Zionism seeks to establish a
home for the Jewish people in Palestine secured under public law.” His
efforts came to fruition only 50 years later, when David Ben-Gurion read
Israel’s Proclamation of Independence in Tel Aviv, beneath a picture of
