1. An early letter from Ahad Ha'am about Hashiloah his journal. Odessa, May 1897

A letter written and signed by Ahad Ha'am on a postcard, Odessa, May 21, 1897. In a letter to Mr. Cohen, Ahad Ha'am criticizes a painting he created for the journal Shalach: "Although the painting is complete and prominent, but your style is somewhat dry, Many words and phrases ... that are not in place in a Magazine intended for many readers. Well, I am willing to allow your warticle in 'hashiloah' but on condition that you change your style in a place I find necessary ... '
. On the margins of the text is Ahad Ha'am's signature.
In 1896, the first issue of the central and most important Hebrew periodical in the 19th and 20th Centuries of Shiloach, or in the accent of one of the "shalach", came out of a new ethnic letter to literature on science and life.
He came out in the framework of the company Ahiasaf, financed by Kalonymus Ze'ev Wissotzky, the great tea manufacturer and an avid supporter of Ahad Ha'am who insisted that he be editor-in-chief of the monthly. The system was usually in Odessa or Warsaw. In the first issue of the new journal Ahad Ha'am declared: "The purpose of the journal is to know ourselves, to understand our lives and to establish our future wisely," and was attended by the best intellectuals and writers of the period. Ahad Ha'am was published as a meticulous editor, and as can be seen from the letter before us.
he often edited and refined the essays in order to adapt them to the high level he wanted to achieve, even though many resented his high level by claiming that the magazine was trying to be too elitist.In the magazine Ahad Ha'am expressed his approach to Zionism as a central goal of the national movement and the transformation of the country Israel was a spiritual and cultural center for the Jewish people. and the Shiloach came out from 1896 to 1909.
Attached is a photo postcard with the portrait of Ahad Ha'am and the signature.

8. Albert Einstein - 'It would be much better if the British intervened three years ago ...', a letter in which Einstein expresses his views on the disastrous developments in Europe on the eve of World War II

German.

A letter full of apprehensions about the dark future before the outbreak of World War II, when Nazi Germany became increasingly disastrous. In his letter, Einstein refers to Ms. Stump, who was in Denmark at the time, and lost her job as a journalist in words of encouragement, that she is not alone in her bitter fate, and that the severe unemployment also strikes other countries. And adds that Denmark her place, is a safe place relative to the rest of Europe (which at that time did not seem threatened by the Nazis)
Knowing the intentions of the Germans at that time, he expressed his disappointment that Britain had not actively intervened three years earlier to stop the strengthening of the Axis powers, whose control had grown stronger. In this context, Einstein wrote in a letter to the student of July 14, 1941: "Organized power can be resisted only by Organized power. With all the sorrow, there is no other way."
On the margins of the letter Einstein adds that he is in a picturesque environment, and that he is infused with an unimaginable flood of letters sent to him from various sources.

When Hitler came to power, Einstein was in the midst of a series of lectures in the United Kingdom. A year later, in 1934, the Nazis robbed him of his property, took away his job, and revoked his citizenship. Many countries offered him refuge (including the Jewish settlement in the Land of Israel), and Einstein finally decided to immigrate to the United States. When he arrived in the United States, he joined the staff of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, where he studied until his last days and never returned to Germany. The letter before us was apparently written in its early years in the United States, when the political developments in prewar Europe were well known to him...
