Theodor Herzl (ung.: Herzl Tivadar; * 2 May 1860 in Pest, Kingdom of Hungary; † 3 July 1904 in Edlach an der Rax, Lower Austria) was an Austro-Hungarian writer, publicist and journalist belonging to Judaism. In 1896 he published the book Der Judenstaat (The Jewish State), which he had written under the impression of the Dreyfus Affair. Herzl was convinced that Jews were a nation and that a Jewish state had to be established due to anti-Semitism, legal discrimination and the failed absorption of Jews into society. He became its mastermind, organised a mass movement and thus mentally prepared the way for the foundation of Israel. He is considered the main founder of political Zionism.[1]
