From 'Israel Zangwill' by Joseph Leftwich, page 48:

She came to England from Poland as a girl with a cousin, also called Ellen

Granddaughter Primrose Horn: (She) was brilliant and stormy, and did not find the uses of adversity at all sweet. She was as turbulent as her husband was tranquil. My memory of her is vivid, a fiery little woman, slender and upright, charged with great vitality, with luxuriant white hair, and darkly smouldering eyes....... (She) became much less religiously observant as the years went on, and so did her children, so that Grandfather ........ longed for the Holy Land.

Israel Abrahams: .... that Israel Zangwill owes much to his mother is certain. She was no mere begetter of genius. She possessed genius herself.
