Heinrich Leve - First publication of the "Hatikva" anthem by this name, Berlin 1898

Liederbuch von Dr. Henrich Lowew - Poems by Heinrich Lewe, Berlin 1898. Hugo Schildberger. First publication of the "Hatikva" anthem under this name.

A book of poems by Heinrich Lewe, alongside poems in German (among them about the wandering Jew - Der ewige jude and Der arme Jude), added at the end of the book six poems in Hebrew. The song that opens the collection is the anthem 'Hatikva' by Naftali Hertz Imber. At the top of the song is written: 'To sing in the well-known tone.' The song appears in its original version of the nine houses, and ends with the words: 'Return to our ancestral land where David Hanna'. The song was originally written by Imber under the name 'Tikvatenu'. The first time that the name "Tikvatenu" was changed to "Hatikva" was in the compilation "Songs of Zion" collected by Menashe Meirowitz in 1895. Although in the Diaspora his name "Tikvatenu" remains. At the Fourth Zionist Congress in 1900, Imber offered "Tikvatenu" to the Hebrew anthem, but was rejected By Herzl. Before us then the first publication of the "Hatikva" anthem under this name in Europe.
