Daniel Horn Collection

 Collection
Identifier: AR 6411

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of research materials collected by Daniel Horn on anti-Semitism, ritual murder cases, etc. in Austria and specifically in Vienna, as well as on Zionism. The materials include Horn’s notes, excerpts from various publications, many manuscripts and a large amount of clippings, all either in original form or in photocopies.

Many writings in this collection are copies from the Central Zionist Archives, specifically the memoirs (denoted as A 196/62) and other writings of Dr. Isidor Schalit that had been taken from his private archives. Excerpts of Schalit’s essays and memoirs appear consistently throughout Horn’s notes, either in conjunction with other handwritten notes, paired with articles, or in translations. Clippings were primarily taken from Austrian newspapers in the late 19th and early 20th century, such as ‘Neue Freie Presse’, ‘Österreichische Wochenschrift’, ‘Die Welt’ and others. Special attention is devoted to the blood libel accusations in Tiszaeszlár, Hungary in 1882/1883 and in Polná, Bohemia in 1899/1900, as well as to Austrian politics, including the tenure of Vienna’s mayor Karl Lueger.
