Theodor Herzl was an Austro-Hungarian journalist and writer known for his relentless promotion of Zionist ideas as well as for being the founder of the World Zionist Organization, whose goals included forming a Jewish state in Palestine. He is regarded as one of the most important figures of political Zionism.
He was the son of Jeanette and businessman Jakob Herzel. He had an older sister named Pauline who died young. In 1889, he married Julie Naschauer, with whom he had two daughters and a son. Although the marriage was not a happy one, it lasted until his death in 1904.
In 1950, his daughter Paulina died of a heroin overdose. His only son Hans killed himself on the day his sister Paulina was buried.
His daughter Trude and her husband died at a concentration camp in 1930.
