Victorian Compromise
- an agreement between men and police where activities that were frowned upon by the Victorian era (drinking, prostitution, gambling, opium) were looked over and allowed, allowing the creation of red-light districts

Victorian Morality

Anti-Semitism- Hatred of Jews
Although Anti-Semitism is most associated with the far-right, it could be found all over the left/right spectrum.
- Germany: it was aided by the combination of nationalism and racism, many thought that inferior races, especially the Jews, were parasites on the pure Aryan race (German, “creators of Western culture”).
- France: The Dreyfus Affair was an example of Anti-semitism and the breakdown of the 3rd Republic.
- Vienna: German nationalism blamed Jews for the corruption of German culture. was said by Hitler to be where he “found his worldview”, one of violent German nationalism and rabid anti-Semitism. 
- Eastern Europe: Worst examples of Anti-Semitism, where 72% of the world Jewish population lived.

a Jewish movement seeking to reestablish a Jewish homeland in Palestine (ancient Israel) that arose in response to growing anti-Semitism. Theodor Herzl was Zionism’s strongest proponent. 3,000 Jews went annually to Palestine from 1904 to 1914, but by WWI the Zionist movement remained nothing more than a dream.
