The State of Israel rejected Zionist pioneer Theodor Herzl’s request to bury his children alongside him because it disapproved of two of the children’s lifestyles, according to a new book cited in the Israeli daily Ha’aretz. One of Herzl’s children, Pauline, died a drug addict. A second, Hans, converted to Christianity for a time, and ultimately committed suicide. A third died in a Nazi concentration camp.
