The Cheka: Lenin's Political Police;Some Jewish “Racial Solidarity” in Communism. Overabundance of Jewish Leadership in Communism Could Actually Have Been Greater

Wednesday, July 19, 2017
This scholarly work presents a variety of interesting information. I focus on a few pertinent topics.


Some commentators have described Dzierzhinsky as a Judaized Pole. How accurate is this?

Leggett describes how Dzerzhinsky grew up in Vilna [Wilno, Vilnius], which he describes as a cosmopolitan city with a strong Jewish element and a focal point of socialist ferment in Tsarist Russia. (p. 34). He adds that, “Dzerzhinsky came under the influence of Martov, future leader of the Menshevik Party, by whom he was introduced into Jewish circles, both proletarian and of the intelligentsia; he made many Jewish friends and zealously learned Yiddish. The Bund—Jewish social democratic workers’ organization in Lithuania, Poland, and Russia, founded in 1897—helped Dzerzhinsky in his political activity, for instance in late 1899. Dzerzhinsky’s close friend and schoolmate in Vilna was Mikhail Goldman…” (pp. 24-25). >>more...

Jewish Poland Revisited: Heritage Tourism in Unquiet Places (New Anthropologies of Europe;Features Candor on the Depth and the Pathology of Modern Jewish Polonophobia

Saturday, June 10, 2017
This book can be useful for those readers interested in a compendium of Polish-Jewish interactions in modern Poland. Most of it, however, is standard fare (as elaborated in the latter part of my review). The most distinctive part of the book is as follows:

Poles Rarely Collaborated with Germans

Friday, April 28, 2017
​In recent years especially, there has been an ongoing smear campaign against Poland--accusing her of being "complicit in the Holocaust". I have prepared this "bulletin" (below and attached), with embedded links, that can be posted: >>more...

Ben Gurion Looks Back in Talks with Moshe Pearlman;Ben Gurion Pro-Russian and Polish-Averse. Later, a British-Proposed Judeopolonia (East Prussia)

Friday, April 28, 2017
There are many subjects raised in this book, and I focus on two distinctive ones. (My review is based on the original 1965 edition).

By way of introduction, David Ben Gurion (David Gruen) grew up in Plonsk, in tsarist-Russian ruled Congress Poland. Zionism, for him, was not an escape from persecution or perceived perpetual gentile unfairness to Jews: It was an affirmative end in itself. In fact, Ben Gurion indicated that he experienced no anti-Semitism. Click on [and read my detailed review] of Memoirs: David Ben-Gurion. >>more...

The POlish Jew social and economical value: Fascinating 1906 Analysis of Polish-Jewish Relations in Late-Tsarist Russian Ruled Poland

Thursday, March 30, 2017
This British author's understanding of Jews is quite different from that of westerners [review based on the original 1906 edition], and she points out that her conclusions are supported by eight years' residence in Russian-ruled central Poland. (see the Preface). >>more...

Poland's Jews: Minority Rights or Special Separate-Nation Rights?

Jewish author Oscar Janowsky is quite even-handed on this subject. He presents a wealth of information. I organize the topics as follows:

History of Poland's Jews, the Partitions, and the Russian Century Afterward;Jewish hostility to the POlish State authour Dubnow

Tuesday, March 28, 2017
The first volume begins with the Jews of pre-Partition Poland. Boleslaw the Pious, in 1264, codified the rights of Jews. Based on papal bulls (e. g., Innocent IV in 1247; V1, p. 179), the blood libel was repudiated as groundless, and a Jew could not be convicted of this offense unless supported by three Polish and three Jewish witnesses. (V1, p. 47). Later, Sigismund Augustus (1564, 1566), enacted a similar policy. (V1, p. 88). In addition, Casimir the Great (V1, pp. 50-on) and John III Sobieski (V1, p. 165) were notably friendly towards Jews. >>more...
