Hans Kohn and Robert Weltsch in Berlin (September 1926)
Hans Kohn (1891-1971), a leading historian and scholar of modern nationalism, was a close friend of Robert Weltsch (1891-1982), co-founder of the Zionist student group, Bar-Kochba, and editor-in-chief of J├╝dische Rundschau. Like Martin Buber, both understood Zionism as moral and spiritual movement and not just a political one.
