This week on Who Do You Think You Are? Rachel Griffiths learns about Jewish heritage and dark family ties.
Actor Rachel Griffiths’ journey into the past takes her back to the re-emergence of Judaism in 17th century England. She discovers her eight-times grandfather was one of the best known Jewish capitalists in London – associated with the Royal Exchange, the Bank of England, and the British East India Company.
