An anti-Jewish, antisemitic pamphlet proving the authenticity of the blood libel and pictures its historic background, in the context of the Tiszaeszlár-Affair.

The Tiszaelszlár Blood Libel was an accusation of Jewish ritual murder in the Hungarian village of Tiszaeszlár. On April 1, 1882 a 14 years old Christian girl named Eszter Solymosi disappeared. The rumor started to spread in the village that the Jews killed her to use her blood for the rituals of the approaching Passover. The accusation led to the arrest and imprisonment of 13 Jews, and a six-week trial between June 19 and August 3, 1883, which is known the first formal prosecution in Europe for blood libel. The course of the trial was carried out in an atmosphere made tense by antisemitic propaganda and agitation. The height of the trial was the defense counsel Károly Eötvös’ closing argument, a seven hour impassioned plea relied on forensic medicine, on July 30th. The case resulted with the acquittal and release of the Jewish prisoners on August 3rd.

This book, an anti-Jewish backup for the accusation against the Jews in the ongoing blood libel, was written by Géza Ónody, an antisemite member of the Hungarian Parliament, who was actually born in Tiszaeszlár. On the coat-tail of the trial and the increasing antisemitism Ónody together with Győző Istóczy established the Hungarian Anti-Semitic Party in October, 1883, which became successful enough to delegate 17 representatives to the Parliament on the elections of 1884.
