Was Sigmund Freud Jewish?

Sigmund Freud

Well, to make a long story short, Sigmund Freud was Jewish!

Since Sigmund Freud's mother was Jewish, and in Judaism one's religion is based on one's mother's religion, then that makes him also Jewish. His father was Jewish too.

Sigmund Freud (who's full birth name was Sigismund Schlomo Freud) was born on 6 May 1856 in Freiberg in M?hren, Moravia, Austrian Empire.

He became known as the founding father of psychoanalysis.
