Rivlin praises Martin Gilbert’s conservation of Jewish history

President Reuven Rivlin releases a statement on the death of historian Martin Gilbert: “I was saddened to hear of the passing of Sir Martin Gilbert. We owe him a debt of gratitude for his invaluable contribution to the documentation, and conservation of the history of the Jewish people. His comprehensive biography of Churchill did so much for our understanding of Churchill’s character, and of his pivotal role in the war against the Nazis. For me, especially having grown up in pre-state Jerusalem, I was fascinated to read in his book ‘Churchill and the Jews’, of Churchill’s commitment to the Zionist movement.”
