Source Description

The weekly newspaper “Jüdische Rundschau” [Jewish Review] was the press organ of the Zionistische Vereinigung für Deutschland” (ZVfD) [Zionist Association for Germany], the German national association of the Zionist Organization (ZO). In issue 14/15 of 1906, the executive committee of the Zionist local chapter Hamburg-Altona reported on the development of its finances and membership, personnel changes and activities of this regional branch of German Zionism in the Hanseatic city. At that time the German Zionists Ernst Kalmus (1874–1959), Leo Estermann (1869–1944), Willy Victor (1876–1956), Max Besser (1877–1941), Samuel Cohen (?–1910), Richard Huldschiner (1872–1931) and Georg Halpern (1878–1962) all belonged to it. Gustav Gabriel Cohen (1830–1906) served as honorary president. The report of the Hamburg-Altona Zionist chapter for 1906 is only one in a series of reports that appeared at regular intervals in the official organ of German Zionism. It falls into the early organizational and ideological formation phase of Zionism before the First World War, which was characterized by numerous fundamental debates on the orientation of Zionist nationalism.
