Brexit minister’s Jewish father

NEW Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab is the son of a Czech-Jewish refugee who fled the Nazis.

Though he was raised Church of England, Mr Raab described how much his family history looms in his mind in a Sunday Times interview in April.

He said: “My father was Jewish and came over in 1938 from Czechoslovakia with his mother, father and uncle and the rest perished.

“I would often hear about the devastation that my family felt both about what the Nazis did, but also the savaging of the country and the crushing of freedom by the Soviet regime that followed.”
