Herzl's Stories [Vowelized]. I) On Wings of Wind. II) For Life and Not for Death. Translator: Joseph Elijah Triwosch . Vilna, 1904 - First edition. With a portrait photo of Herzl and a poem in his memory.
Two stories written by Herzl in 1896. "In these stories there is no mention or hint of Zionism, the state of the Jews or nationality in general, here he stands outside of all parties and peoples, and one can say also outside of all places and times... and without special intent he opens for us a small window to glimpse into the chambers of his inner heart..." (From the translator's introduction). The stories deal with the relationship between society elites and the common people. The translator Triwosch signs his introduction just a month after Herzl's death.
