   Albert Katz (18581923), writer, journalist, and Zionist. Katz, who was born in Lodz, served as teacher and preacher at Fuerstenwalde, near Berlin (188386). Katz and W. Bambus founded the periodical Serubabel (188688), which advocated colonization in Erez Irael. In 1890 Katz joined the editorial staff of the Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums and eventually succeeded G. Karpeles and L. Geiger as chief editor. He was co-founder and secretary of the Verband der Vereine fuer Juedische Geschichte und Literatur and edited its Jahrbuch (JJGL) with Karpeles. Katz's published books include: Der Jude und das Land seiner Vaeter (also published in Hebrew; 1883); Der Wahre Talmudjude (against Rohling, 1893, 1928); Die Juden im Kaukasus (1894); Die Juden in China (1900); and Christen und Juden als Foerderer der hebraeischen Sprache (1907). He also wrote some short stories and translated I. B. Levinsohn's Efes Damim (against the blood libel) into German as Die Blutluege (1892).
