A-Z Challenge: H is for Herzl

Theodor Herzl

.

Theodor Herzl (1860-1904) is known as the father of the modern State of Israel (literally: the visionary of the state). In Israel, he has a town (Herzliya) named after him, several streets and, in Jerusalem, a park ā€“ Mount Herzl. It is here that many leaders and fallen soldiers are buried. Herzl was reburied here in 1949.

I wanted to photograph Herzl’s tomb, but the area was closed for rehearsals for forthcoming ceremonies, so I snapped these flowers instead. If you can’t read it, you’ll have to believe that it says: Mount Herzl.
