Born to a Jewish family in Nagyvázsony 120 kilometres from Budapest, Austria-Hungary, and named after Theodor Herzl, Kollek shared his father Alfréd's enthusiasm for Zionist ideas. He grew up in Vienna. In 1935, three years before the Nazis seized power in Austria, the Kollek family emigrated to Palestine -- this was still the time of the British Mandate. Kollek was eager to help build a new society and, in 1937, was one of the co-founders of Kibbutz Ein Gev near Lake Galilee.[1] In the same year he married Tamar Schwarz, who gave birth to two children, Amos (born 1947) and Osnat.
