Hans Turned Not Catholic but Baptised

Download PDF for this date

It was established here today that Hans Herzl was converted not to Catholicism but to Baptismism. The ceremony took place in the Baptist Chapel in Vienna by Pastor Georg Sarre.

At the same hour when devoted Zionists came to pay tribute to the memory of his father at his graveside in Vienna, Hans became a Baptist.
