It was recently discovered that the Dutch national newspaper 'Nieuwe Rotterdamsche Courant' in 1921 published an anonymous interview with 'Abdu'l-Bahá taken at his home in Haifa as well as in Tiberias. The correspondent turned out to be Ms Jo Goudsmit, a Dutch Zionist who emigrated to Palestine in 1919.
