Uh..........wasn’t Christopher Columbus a converted Jew?
>> “wasnt Christopher Columbus a converted Jew?” <<
All of the “Italian” surnames that end in an O are originally Jewish immigrants. They all absorbed into the latin culture in the distant past, but do have revealing facial features.
My mother was from two of those families.
Colombo would likely be Jewish.
No, though he was clearly sympathetic. The unsubstantiated speculation was that he had a distant Jewish ancestor. While the Reich only went back two generations, grandma and gramps, the Inquisition went back four, great greats, in looking for Jewish ancestry, though that only imposed on you the restrictions of a "new" Christian, much less severe than the Reich. Off topic, but even the Inquisition wouldn't be concerned about Elizabeth Warren's Cherokee "roots".
