The Place to Find All Things Churchill

Statement in Response to Article by Andrew Roberts in the Policy Exchange

The International Churchill Society is pleased that Andrew Roberts and Zewditu Gebreyohanes have addressed the recent controversy at Churchill College, Cambridge with historical context and nuance.

The Society fully endorses honest debate and welcomes the inclusion of multiple perspectives. It does not support unbalanced discussions that remove historical figures from the context of their times. We learn the crucial lessons of Sir Winston Churchill’s example only when his legacy is examined from a holistic approach that views his actions and words as part of historical continuity.
