#onthisday, 1873, Chaim Nachman Bialik, one of the great icons of Hebrew, Jewish and Israeli literature is born.

.

Famous for his piece on the horrific 1903 Kishinev Pogrom, In the City of Slaughter, where he critized the Jewish population for not defending themselves. The poem would be a rallying cry for the Zionist push for self-determination - one that Bialik would champion all of his adult life.
