Gottlieb, a member of the Zionist Actions Committee published an article in the “Najer Hajnt”, in which he relates interesting details concerning the attitude of the Herzl family towards the Zionist organization. The writer recalls that at Herzl’s funeral, Nadame Herzl sobbed, exclaiming, “Your Zionists have robbed my husband, you have taken away the father of my children.”
