Giles Lauren of Sacramento, California, asks on Monday, March 26, 2007 if the rumours about Churchill's mother's being a Jewess are true


Winston Churchill's mother

A WEBSITE called Judicial Inc. has posted an allegation that Churchill's mother, Jennie Jerome was née Jacobson, along with some other information about her. Is this credible?

David Irving replies:

Yes, The Jerusalem Post revealed some time ago that her mother was Jewish. See my note in "Churchill's War", vol. ii: "Triumph in Adversity":

WSC's mother Jenny Jerome was 'outed' in The Jerusalem Post, Jan 18, 1993: editorial columnist Moshe Kohn wrote: 'Cunning, no doubt, came to Churchill in the Jewish genes transmitted by his mother Lady Randolph Churchill, née Jenny Jacobson/Jerome.'
   As Prof. William Rubinstein of the Univ. of Wales has shown, the case of Winston's schoolfriend and later India Secretary, Leo Amery, was 'possibly the most remarkable example of concealment of identity in 20th century British political history.' In his 1955 autobiography Amery wrote that his father was English and that his mother was born Elisabeth Leitner, a Hungarian exile who had fled via Constantinople to England; Rubinstein's convincing research establishes that she was born Erszebet Saphir in Pest, in the Jewish quarter of the Hungarian capital. Ibid., Jan 12, 1999 ('Balfour Declaration's author was a secret Jew'). Both of her parents were Jews.
   Amery - later one of the authors of the 1917 Balfour Declaration - changed his middle name from Moritz to Maurice when he entered Harrow c1887. History Today, Feb 1999, and letter from Prof. Rubinstein, Nov 22, 2000.


On February 8, 1920, the Illustrated Sunday Herald in London published Churchill's extraordinary article: "Zionism versus Bolshevism"
