Herzlmania

"Herzlmania" is a short film celebrating David Matlow's Theodor Herzl Memorabilia Collection, the world's largest private collection of Herzl artifacts. The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies commissioned the film from filmmaker Daniel Mooney. Narrating the film is Herzl’s biographer, Derek Penslar, the William Lee Frost Professor of Jewish History at Harvard University and author of "Theodor Herzl: The Charismatic Leader" (Yale University Press, 2020). 

The film premiered on September 1, 2021 at a Schusterman Center event entitled "Herzlmania! 125 years of Theodor Herzl’s 'The Jewish State.'" (Watch a recording of that live event.)
