Using primarily public archives, and Churchill's own published speeches and writings, Professor Cohen offers a new assessment of the great statesman's fluctuating policies towards the Jews and Zionism, over the span of a long political career. He concludes that Churchill never subscribed to the Zionists' ideology, but supported their cause, sporadically, for so long as he judged it to serve British interests. Likewise, various plans for the rescue of European Jewry during World War Two were subordinated to Churchill's overriding goal of winning the war and securing the peace. The Holocaust was regarded as a purely 'Jewish affair' - and its ramifications for civilisation as a whole were not appreciated.
