Pope to Place Wreath on Herzl’s Grave in Reparation

110 years after prophet of the future State Binyamin Zev Herzl visited the Vatican and Pope Pius X refused his request to help establish the State of Israel, Pope Francis will make amends during his upcoming visit to Israel.

The Pope will visit Har Herzl, Israel’s military cemetery, where he will place a wreath on the grave of the late Binyamin Herzl himself.
