Joseph Trumpeldor

Joseph Vladimirovich (Volfovich) Trumpeldor (November 21, 1880 – March 1, 1920, Hebrew: יוֹסֵף טְרוּמְפֶּלְדוֹר‎ [joˈsef tʁumpelˈdoʁ], Russian: Иосиф Владимирович (Вольфович) Трумпельдор [ˈjɵsʲɪf trʊmpʲɪlʲˈdor]) was an early Zionist activist who helped to organize the Zion Mule Corps and bring Jewish immigrants to Palestine.

Trumpeldor died defending the settlement of Tel Hai in 1920 and subsequently became a Zionist national hero.According to a standard account, his last words were "It's nothing, it is good to die for our country", but that he ever said these words has been challenged.
