The Western Wall, the only remainder of the Second Temple. The Second Temple was built after the Jews returned from the Babylonian captivity. The Temple was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD.

In 1896, Theodor Herzl wrote 'The Jewish State'. In this book, he proposed the creation of a Jewish nation as a solution to the anti-Semitic persecution Jews had faced in Europe for centuries.

This anti-Semitic caricature is of a Jewish French army officer, Albert Dreyfus, falsely accused of treason in the 1890s.
