First and only son of Theodor Herzl, a Jewish journalist and writer from Austria-Hungary, considered to have been the father of modern political Zionism and in effect the founder of the State of Israel. His mother, Julie Herzl (nee Naschauer), was the daughter of a wealthy Jewish businessman in Vienna. Hans had an older sister, Paulina, and a younger sister, Margaritha (Trude). Hans was given a secular upbringing and his father notably refused to allow him to be circumcised. After his father's early death, Hans successively converted and became a Baptist, then a Catholic, and flirted with other Protestant denominations. He sought a personal salvation for his own religious needs and a universal solution, as had his father, to Jewish suffering caused by anti-Semitism. Hans shot himself to death in Bordeaux on the day of his sister Paulina's funeral, 17 September 1930; he was 39 years old. In 2006 the remains of Paulina and Hans were moved from Bordeaux, France, and reburied not far from their father on Mt. Herzl.

Sy Scholfield quotes "Dieses Jahr in Jerusalem: Theodor Herzl: Traum und Wirklichkeit" by Luc Jochimsen and Michel Friedman (Aufbau-Verlag, 2004), p. 35: "Die zwei Jahre vom Juni 1889 bis Juni 1891 erscheinen als einzige Katastrophe: Zwei Schwangerschaften, zwei Geburten, und der Mann notiert zwar auf dem Kalenderblatt vom 10. Juni: »Um halb vier Uhr Früh wurde mir heute mein Sohn Hans geboren." Translation: The two years from June 1889 to June 1891 appear as a single disaster: two pregnancies, two births, and the man listed on the calendar page of 10 June: 'At half past three o'clock early today my son Hans was born to me.'
