A powerful documentary film based on the acclaimed Churchill biographer Sir Martin Gilbert‘s book that examines a  neglected aspect of one of world history’s most renown leaders; Winston Churchill’s relationship to Jews and Jewish issues. Drawing on a treasure trove of interviews featuring Churchill family members, Lord Conrad Black, Sir Martin Gilbert, Alan Dershowitz, The 11th Duke of Marlborough and others, Avrich shows how Churchill grew beyond the kind of friendship with individual British Jews to an unlikely obsession in becoming a supporter of Jewish causes—most notably being responsible for determining the future status of the Jewish National Home in Palestine. As a war leader and prime minister, this film examines the origins, implications, and results of Churchill’s commitment to Jews.
