It's the first I have heard of it. with all the information on suzanne it seems very unlikely to me. I would suppose most Europeans have some sort of Jewish ancestry is one goes back far enough, but that's hardly the same as being Jewish.

I love this picture.

Regarding Suzanne being Jewish, like Rollo said, first time I've heard of it. I doubt it.

Thanks for posting her results before the Great War, been looking at her photos from early years.
