“Ghetto Tragedies” is a 1899 novel by British author Israel Zangwill. Contents include: “They That Walk In Darkness”, “Transitional”, “Noah's Ark”, “The Land Of Promise”, “To Die In Jerusalem”, “Bethulah”, “The Keeper Of Conscience”, etc. Zangwill (1864–1926) was a leading figure in cultural Zionism during the 19th century, as well as close friend of father of modern political Zionism, Theodor Herzl. In later life, he renounced the seeking of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. A notable portion of Zangwill's work concentrated on ghetto life and earned him the nickname "the Dickens of the Ghetto". Other notable works by this author include: “Dreamers of the Ghetto” (1898), “Grandchildren of the Ghetto” (1892 ), and “Children of the Ghetto: A Study of a Peculiar People” (1892).This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with an introductory chapter from “English Humourists of To-Day” by J. A. Hammerton.

The moment came near for the Polish centenarian grandmother to die. From the doctor's statement it appeared she had only a bad quarter of an hour to live. Her attack had been sudden, and the grandchildren she loved to scold could not be present. She had already battled through the great wave of pain, and was drifting beyond the boundaries of her earthly Refuge. The nurses, forgetting the trouble her querulousness and her overweening dietary scruples had cost them, hung over the bed on which the shrivelled entity lay. They did not know she was living again through the one great episode of her life. Nearly forty years back, when (though already hard upon seventy and a widow) a Polish village was all her horizon, she received a letter. It arrived on the eve of Sabbath on a day of rainy summer. It was from her little boy-her only boy-who kept a country inn seven-and-thirty miles away, and had a family. She opened the letter with feverish anxiety. Her son-her Kaddish-was the apple of her eye. The old woman eagerly perused the Hebrew script, from right to left. Then weakness overcame her and she nearly fell.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Zangwill was a British author at the forefront of cultural Zionism during the 19th century.The Ghetto Tragedies collected in a little volume in 1893 have been so submerged in the present collection that Zangwill relegated the original name in the subtitle. Anyone who wishes to measure the progress or decay of the author's imagination has these materials at hand. "Noah's Ark" stands on the firmer Ararat of history, Zangwill's invention being confined to the figure of Peloni (the Hebrew for "nobody"). The other stories also have a basis in life. But neither in pathos nor heroic stimulation can they vie with the literal tragedy with which the whole book is in a sense involved.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

"The ""Ghetto Tragedies"" collected in a little volume in 1893 have been so submerged in the present collection that I have relegated the original name to the sub-title. ""Satan Mekatrig"" was written in 1889, ""Bethulah"" this year. Anyone who should wish to measure the progress or decay of my imagination during the ten years has therefore materials to hand. ""Noah's Ark"" stands on the firmer Ararat of history, my invention being confined to the figure of Peloni (the Hebrew for ""nobody""). The other stories have also a basis in life. But neither in pathos nor heroic stimulation can they vie with the literal tragedy with which the whole book is in a sense involved. Mrs. N.S. Joseph, the great-hearted lady to whom ""Ghetto Tragedies"" was inscribed, herself walked in darkness, yet was not dismayed: in the prime of life she went down into the valley of the shadow, with no word save of consideration for others. I trust the new stories would not have been disapproved by my friend, to whose memory they must now, alas! be dedicated.
