The article focuses on «Ritual Murder in Hungary» (1913), the theatrical drama authored by Jewish German writer Arnold Zweig. It highlights the dramatic dimension of the unfair and infamous blood libel. Main character of the drama is Moritz Scharf, unfairly charged of ritual murder in Hungary. The drama, however, suggests that redemption and a Messianic hope of spiritual, mystic and mythical rebirth of the young man is possible in Palestine, land of the fathers.
