How A Jewish ‘Socialite’ Protected KGB Spy Kim Philby And His Handler Victor Rothschild

Victor Rothschild

A new British television drama based on the life of Jewish socialite Flora Solomon portrays her as some sort of “hero” for fingering her close friend — the notorious double agent, Kim Philby — 30 years after she found out he was a Soviet asset and member of the Cambridge Five — a KGB spy ring headed by Victor Rothschild:

It was a chance conversation which changed the course of history and led to the unveiling of one of Britain’s greatest traitors. Now the key role a Jewish woman had in exposing the infamous double-agent, Kim Philby, has been dramatised for television.

Kim Philby

Harold Adrian Russell “Kim” Philby HotUOLODN (1 January 1912 – 11 May 1988) was a British intelligence officer and a double agent for the Soviet Union. In 1963 he was revealed to be a member of the Cambridge Five, a spy ring which passed information to the Soviet Union during World War II and in the early stages of the Cold War. Of the five, Philby is believed to have been most successful in providing secret information to the Soviets.

Born in British India, Philby was educated at Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge. He was recruited by Soviet intelligence in 1934. After leaving Cambridge, Philby worked as a journalist and covered the Spanish Civil War and the Battle of France. In 1940 he began working for the United Kingdom’s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS or MI6). By the end of the Second World War he had become a high-ranking member. In 1949 Philby was appointed first secretary to the British Embassy in Washington and served as chief British liaison with American intelligence agencies. During his career as an intelligence officer, he passed large amounts of intelligence to the Soviet Union, including a plot to subvert the communist rule of Albania.

He was also responsible for tipping off two other spies under suspicion of espionage, Donald Maclean and Guy Burgess, both of whom subsequently fled to Moscow in May 1951. The defections of Maclean and Burgess cast suspicion over Philby, resulting in his resignation from MI6 in July 1951. He was publicly exonerated in 1955, after which he resumed his career as both a journalist and a spy for SIS in Beirut. In January 1964, having finally been unmasked as a Soviet agent, Philby defected to Moscow, where he lived until his death in 1988.

In Vienna, working to aid refugees from “Nazi Germany“, Philby met and fell in love with Litzi Friedmann (born Alice Kohlmann), a young Austrian Communist of Hungarian Jewish origins.

The Cambridge Spy Ring was a ring of spies in the United Kingdom that passed information to the Soviet Union during World War II and was active from the 1930s until at least into the early 1950s. None of the known members were ever prosecuted for spying. The number and membership of the ring emerged slowly, from the 1950s onwards. The general public first became aware of the conspiracy after the sudden flight of Donald Maclean (cryptonym: Homer) and Guy Burgess (cryptonym: Hicks) to the Soviet Union in 1951. Suspicion immediately fell on Harold “Kim” Philby (cryptonyms: Sonny, Stanley), who eventually fled the country in 1963. Following Philby’s flight, British intelligence obtained confessions from Anthony Blunt (cryptonyms: Tony, Johnson) and then John Cairncross (cryptonym: Liszt), who have come to be seen as the last two of a group of five. Their involvement was kept secret for many years: until 1979 for Blunt, and 1990 for Cairncross. The moniker Cambridge Four evolved to become the Cambridge Five after Cairncross was added.

    If you ever want to read a really concise account of Philby and the awful damage he did spying for the Communist, check out A Spy Among Friends by Ben Macintyre.

    … and to think I thought the Cambridge Five was the Cambridge turn off on the M11 Motorway until I finished my MI6 induction program by studying the epic non-fiction spy novel, Beyond Enkription, in #TheBurlingtonFiles series. It’s a must read for espionage cognoscenti.

    It’s all so topsy turvy and confusing! If Kim Philby had never been caught there would never have been a monument of him in Moscow and most of us would never have heard of him. If only he had read the epic spy novel Beyond Enkription in The Burlington Files series. It’s a must read for espionage cognoscenti. Have a look at a recent news article in TheBurlingtonFiles website dated 31 October 2022 about Col Pemberton’s People in MI6, John le Carré and Kim Philby.

      Good point. It could easily just be the tip of a iceberg. We had left wing politicians who openly went to meet the East German dictator.
      And a number of cases about politicians being cozy with – or even spying for the Warzaw Pact after the “fall of Communism” and nothing ever happened.
