European History

This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen

Saturday, June 4, 2011
Instead of repeating the many other reviewers, I focus on certain issues. To begin with, accusations have been leveled against the author for being calloused towards Jewish deaths. In actuality, he sympathetically describes the human scenes of suffering, such as the dead and trampled infants in the death trains, the sick being shot and dumped into the pyres, entire transports of Jews going up in smoke, etc. However, he does mention the Jewish kapos. >>more...

Konfrontacja sił w Europie w 1939 roku

Wednesday, May 4, 2011
Konfrontacja sił w Europie w dniu pierwszego stycznia w 1939 roku wydawała się
Hitlerowi bardzo korzystna, ponieważ już w dniu 25 listopada 1936 podpisał on Anty- Kominternowski Pakt z Japonią, która wkrótce rozpoczęła działania wojenne przeciwko Związkowi Sowieckiemu. Po raz pierwszy w historii świata w Mandżurii w latach 1938-1939 miały miejsce wielkie bitwy powietrzne około 400 samolotów. Hitler liczył na atak na ZSSR około 600 dywizjami. W tym 200 dywizji Armii Kwantungu, z którymi miał współdziałać atak z zachodu 220 dywizji niemieckich, stu polskich i około 80 dywizji innych sojuszników Niemiec – razem, jak powtarzam siłą około 600 dywizji przeciwko znacznie mniejszym liczebnie 170 dywizjom sowieckim w 1939 roku. Siły sowieckie były powiększone w 1941 roku do stanu 225 dywizji. >>more...

The Mass Deportation of Poles to Siberia: A Historical Narrative based on the written testimony of the Polish Siberian survivors

Sunday, April 17, 2011
This work consists of dozens of 2-4 page testimonies of Poles who lived in the Soviet-annexed Kresy (Poland's pre-WWII eastern half), and who were deported in 1940-1941 as "enemies of the people" by the Soviet Communist authorities and NKVD. The testimonies touch on prewar life and the start of WWII in 1939, the early Soviet occupation, the fateful night of arrest and deportation, and long trip to the Gulags, the unspeakable living and working conditions there, the many deaths in the Gulags, the "amnesty" caused by Nazi Germany attacking its erstwhile Soviet ally in June 1941, the freed surviving remnants of the Gulags gathering in the southern USSR, the participation in the Battle of Monte Cassino, and the post-WWII life in various countries (especially the USA). >>more...

Zaglada Zydow w Krakowie (Cracoviana) (Polish Edition)

Thursday, March 3, 2011
German propaganda portrayed the forced confinement of Jews in ghettos as a protective measure against typhus. When typhus epidemics did not break out, the Germans changed their story. They now said that Jews had a natural symbiosis with lice, which was why they could easily spread typhus while not becoming ill themselves, and for which reason they still had to be isolated. (p. 43). Although the ghettoization of the Jews failed to starve and sicken them out of existence, the mortality rate was nevertheless 13 times that of the natural prewar rate. (p. 50) >>more...

Teutonic Lies About History of „Kaliningrad” – Letter to Wikipedia

Saturday, December 25, 2010
Balto-Slavic past of Kaliningrad should be included in the rich history of this strategically important region of Europe. Thus the early interest in establishing an international rule of law in Poland was caused by a forgery committed by the German Armed Brethren, who obtained a temporary fief of Chełmno from Konrad I of Mazovia (1187–1247) in 1228 in the Act of Kruszwica. The temporary fief of Chełmno was obtained by the Teutonic Knights for the time needed to convert the Balto-Slavic Prussians to Christianity. >>more...

The Warsaw Rising 1944: Perception and Reality.

Thursday, July 22, 2010
Last fall CNN decided to make a documentary on the Warsaw Rising of 1944.2 The producers and journalists involved with the project initially knew very little.3 To remedy that, first, they were given a short bibliography in English.4 Next, they were shown a few hours of original documentary footage and several albums of still photography from the Rising. Further, the CNN team was supplied with a list of witnesses and participants. Last but not least, the producers became familiar with the music from the Rising. In short, after immersing themselves in the material, they probably learned more about this historical event than the average Pole. >>more...

A Polish Jew Deported into the Interior of the USSR in 1940,

Thursday, July 8, 2010
The author of this book grew up in pre-WWII Poland. He came from a well-to-do, assimilated Jewish family, who had Polonized their name (from Weidenfeld to Wajdenfeld (p. 357); subsequently Anglicized to Waydenfeld.) In common with many assimilated Polish Jews, the Waydenfelds were atheists. (p. 404, 406). [This recounts Cardinal Hlond's much-maligned 1936 "Jews are freethinkers" statement. >>more...

Defensive doctrine of Poland used in 1939 was decisive and made history

Sunday, December 6, 2009
The 70th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War was commemorated in Gdańsk, where German battleship Schlezwig-Holstein on a “goodwill visit” on September 1, 1939 at 4.45 a.m. fired the first shots of the war with its 16 inch guns aiming at Polish military base on the peninsula of Westerplatte in the free city of Gdansk. On September 1, 2009 European heads of governments gathered on Westerplatte, to commemorate and honor the anniversary of WWII. >>more...

Eisenhower and the German Pows: Facts Against Falsehood (Eisenhower Center Studies on War and Peace)

Wednesday, November 11, 2009
This work examines, and soundly debunks, the claim of James Bacque, who had asserted in his OTHER LOSSES, that the Allies under Eisenhower deliberately starved 800,000--1,000,000 captured German POWs. However, this scholarly work is valuable not only in the refutation of the methodology used by Bacque in his book (and subsequent ones), but also in understanding the fallacious argumentation used by other forms of pro-German revisionism (such as that which insists that 2 million Germans perished during the expulsions from post-WWII Poland). >>more...
