   Anti-Zionest polemic by R. Moses Chaim Ephraim ben Abraham Bloch. The title is from the verse, “Who gave Jacob for a plunder, and Israel to the robbers?” (Isaiah 42:24), destroyed and demolished. It is from Herzel and Landau via Goldman and Kalzkin to the slaughter of the Jews, playing with the blood on the lot (gorel) of Israel, a mound of the tombstones of the holy ones of Israel, destroyed by “the fierce anger of the Lord” (var. cit.) who has hid His face due to our many iniquities. This is written by me for the last generation, Moses Chaim Ephraim Bloch. He describes himself as one of the exiles of Vienna, whose eyes look to Jerusalem. The title page further states that records from Herzel that are unknown and not in the history books, as well as letters from distinguished rabbis from before the war. At the bottom of the page, in English, is R. Bloch’s name and address.

The text is comprised of anti-Zionist letters, documents, and text from R. Bloch. The text is in a single column in square Hebrew letters, except for a small amount of text in German. Me Natan Ya’akov le-Mishisah does not appear in major collections.

Paragraph 2    ... מהרצל ונורדוי דרך גולדמן וקלצקין אל השחיטה וחורבן היהדות ... גל עד ... לקדושי ישראל שנשמדו על ידי חרון אף ה' ובהסתרת פנים בעוה"ר, נכתב זאת לדור אחרון ממני משה חיים אפרים בלאך ... עם רשימות בלתי נודעות מהרצל החסרות בספרי הימים שלו גם קצת מכתבים מרבנים ואדמורי"ם מלפני המלחמה ...
