" A first edition of Nahum Sokolow's first published work, written in response to the pogroms that were being unleashed across the region and fueling the new Zionist movement, and published in Warsaw, the site of the 1881 Christmas Pogrom.

Members of Hibbat Zion and Bilu, two early Zionist movements that were the mainstays of the First Aliya, defined their goal as 'the political, national, and spiritual resurrection of the Jewish people in Palestine'" (Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 2019) .
