New Post-WWI Nations, Polish-Jewish Relations, "Polish Fatalism", Versailles "Injustices" to Germany Exposed

Friday, September 30, 2011
This review is from: Balkanized Europe: A study in political analysis and reconstruction, (Paperback) The author examines the numerous nations that had arisen after WWI, and other peoples (e.g., the Slovenes) who had not become separate nations. He does not seem to use the term "Balkanized" in a pejorative sense.

Mowrer discusses both Pan-Germanism and Pan-Slavism. He quips: "But Bautzen, Kottbus, Zerbst, Dresden, Leipzig, Chemnitz, Torgau, Glogau, Stargard--all these are old Slav names, Germanized...the ancient Slav lands, the valleys of the Elbe and the Oder..." (p. 298). >>more...

The Polish Question, Jewish Beneficiaries of Polish Losses, Encyclopedic Detail on the Polish anti-Prussian Economic Moves, etc

Friday, September 30, 2011
The author is not sympathetic to Poles. He repeatedly regards them (and cites those who agree with him), as too emotional and quarrelsome a people to acquire or keep a state.

Butler alludes to the Litvaks, and the tsarist Russian policies designed to exacerbate Jewish-gentile conflicts, as follows: "The problem of the Jew in countries like Russia and Poland cannot be stated in terms of Western Europe. It is conditioned, not primarily by religious feeling, but by economic conditions...The official Russian policy in recent years of concentrating the Jews in the Western provinces led to a large influx of Russian Jews into Poland (general called `Lithuanian Jews' [Litvaks] though they do not for the most part come from Lithuania), who compete with the original Polish Jews, and have markedly lowered the standard of living...They held, and hold, four-fifths of the trade of the country in their hands, and control a large proportion--how large is not easy from the available statistics to determine--of the capital invested in Polish industry." (pp. 124-125). >>more...

Poland and the Poles / by A. Bruce Boswell...with Twenty-One Illustrations and Three Maps

Friday, September 16, 2011
Boswell was a research fellow in Polish at the University of Liverpool. Owing to its scope, I can only touch on a few items.

Even when subject to the Partitions, the Poles continued to affirm human liberty: "In fact, Poland, in 1794, was the first nation outside Western Europe to declare all its peasants free. This was not done in Prussia til 1823, in Austria till 1848, and in Russia till 1861." (p. 84). >>more...
