Contemporary, semiofficial transcript of the anti-Jewish, anti-Semite trial of the Tiszaeszlár Blood Libel, considered the most reliable primary source of the trial.

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.

Elek Jóba’s Tisza-Eszlár Bulletin was an unbiased, objective, and reliable source of the trial, and restricted itself only to the facts, which in itself was a statement among the ongoing hysterical circumstances. The paper was published on each day of the trial. The shorthand reports made in the courtroom were edited, set and published more than once a day, thus from the fifth issue the Bulletin was annexed with one to three, two to four-page sections, according to how much of printing was ready. Because of the haste and the economy, only the first eight numbers have nameplate, the rest of the issues have the title in the folio line. The closing arguments are only summarized in the Bulletin and were published separately in a 64-page brochure, in the same format. Eötvös’ closing argument is taking most part of it between pp. 35– 57.

In its complete form, an extremely scarce and important primary source of one of the major, internationally followed, modern antisemitic affairs, the first formal prosecution for blood libel and the first ritual murder trial in which forensic medicine and scientific procedure featured prominently in the court’s deliberations.
