Dorothy Rothschild

Just before her eighteenth birthday, Dorothy Pinto became Mrs. James de Rothschild and was thrust into the center of the whirlwind of the political, social and Zionist life of the Rothschild family. She joined in their work on behalf of Jewish settlement in Palestine, playing a prominent role in the family's contribution to developing various aspects of the State of Israel.
