Ghetto Comedies

Zangwill was a leading figure in cultural Zionism during the 19th century, as well as close friend of father of modern political Zionism, Theodor Herzl. A notable portion of Zangwill’s work concentrated on ghetto life and earned him the nickname “the Dickens of the Ghetto”. In later life, he renounced the seeking of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.
