Poland: Eagle in the East

Wednesday, November 11, 2009
The British author is generally well informed about Poland's history and sufferings during WWII. Did you realize that 38% of Poland's fixed assets were destroyed in the war and ensuing German occupation? (p. 110). Also, not only large numbers of Jews but also large numbers of Poles were murdered during the German conquest and occupation of Poland. While discussing the Polish aid to fugitive Jews, Woods includes mention of the hamlet of Osiny, where the Poles took turns hiding a Jewish girl so that everyone would be guilty, and the Germans would thereby not be able to play one Pole against another in terms of denunciation. (p. 28). >>more...

German Scholars and Ethnic Cleansing, 1919-1945 (English and German Edition)

Friday, October 30, 2009
Move over, jack-booted thugs! The reader may be astonished at the depth of broad-based German intellectuals' support for Germano-supremacist attitudes. It began, first of all, in defining what a German is, particularly one who has lived among non-Germans for generations (e. g., Michael Fahlbusch, p. 34). (This work also contains some information of genealogical interest in this regard.) German liberals such as Otto Scheel were in basic agreement with Nazi attitudes against the Slavs. (Eric Kurlander, pp. 204-207). >>more...

Democracy of one million citizens in XVIc. Poland.

Tuesday, September 8, 2009
Poland’s indigenous democratic process created the democracy, which had one million free citizens by the beginning of the seventeenth century. This happened within the multinational Polish Nobles Republic, which was rooted in the old Slavic tradition. The height of early  military successes of Slavic Tribal Military Democracies happened already by the year 740 AD. It caused the Kingdom of the Franks to build its “Maginot Line” of that period, named “Limes Sorabicus” and “Limes Saxonia” build east of the Rhine River, from the Danish Mark in the north to the Mark of Avaria (now Bavaria) in the south. (Iwo C. Pogonowski: Hippocrene Books Inc, New York, 2000, 3rd edition 2008, page 3.) >>more...

German Revanchism, Incl. Myth of 2 Million German Expellee Dead

Monday, August 17, 2009
The list author says: "Revisionism: A form of Holocaust denial is the invention of a nonexistent '2 million expellee (Vertriebene) genocide' to confuse the German-made one. In recent years, there has been an increasing tendency for Germans to rewrite history as victims instead of perpetrators of Nazism, to relativize German and non-German conduct during the Holocaust (as in a notorious DER SPIEGEL article), and for certain Germans to find the audacity to demand 'reparations' payments from Poland.

Jewish Suffring 1939 and after

Sunday, August 2, 2009
1939. In September 1939 Germany invaded Poland. By early October the country was partitioned once again. Under Nazi rule, most Jews were forced into ghettos and the community was largely annihilated through mass killings by shooting squads and killing centers. Even after World War II, Jews faced adversity under communism and did not remain in large numbers. After the fall of the Communist system in the 1990s, however, Polish Jewry has experienced revival. >>more...
