Most of this book is so-so. It contains some whoppers. I focus on two of them.

MUDDYING THE WATERS ON THE OUN-UPA GENOCIDE OF POLES


starsOUN-UPA Genocide Relativized. The Zydokomuna (Judeo-Bolshevism) Whitewashed and Exculpated ByJan Peczkison October 19, 2017 Format: Kindle Edition Let me begin by saving the reader some time. A much better book, on this overall subject, is FORGOTTEN HOLOCAUST, by Lukas.

Most of this book is so-so. It contains some whoppers. I focus on two of them.

MUDDYING THE WATERS ON THE OUN-UPA GENOCIDE OF POLES

Author Lech M. Nijakowski (pp. 53-on) creates a contrived ambiguity about the genocide. He would have us believe that the genocidal slaughter of Ukrainians and Poles had been mutual (much as some Turks would have us believe that the 1915 slaughter of Armenians and Turks had been mutual and non-genocidal). Such an apparent symmetry is utter nonsense. There was no "Polish-Ukrainian war" at all until Poles began fighting back, and that was several months AFTER tens of thousands of mostly-defenseless Polish men, women, and children had already been murdered by the OUN-UPA. Finally, Ukrainian civilians killed in Polish reprisals do not exceed 5% of Polish civilians slain by Ukrainian nationalists. For details, see comments.

EXCUSES…EXCUSES… FOR THE FACT OF THE ZYDOKOMUNA

[Again, let me save the reader some time. Those interested in factual details, on Jews and Communism, should see the comments under this review].

This German-published book contains a very puerile exculpatory article, on Jews in Communism, by Anna Zawadzka. Then again, it figures. She is identified as having an interest in so-called Gender Studies (p. 282). She is a LEWAK. In fact, she calls the Zydokomuna a form of hate speech. (p. 256). This is classic LEWACTWO, in which rational thinking is replaced with the standard accusation of hate speech. Moreover, she treats Communism as if it was some kind of innocent little fad that post-WWII Poles could take or leave.

The author gets bogged down in vague, convoluted reasoning about the statements of historians Marek Jan Chodakiewicz and Piotr Gontarczyk. However, she provides no evidence that they are wrong.

Anna Zawadzka complains that the Jews of Poland were generally seen as alien. (p. 251), and that this was—surprise—all the Poles’ fault. What she does not tell the reader is that, since the dawn of history, and until fairly recent times, Jews themselves had considered themselves very much alien to the despised GOYIM, and had chosen to live in self-imposed apartheid. Furthermore, they always had considered themselves a separate nation (e. g, “Next year in Jerusalem”).

Taking her illogic further, author Zawadzka would have us believe that Jews owed Poland no loyalty owing to the fact that they had not been accepted into Polish society. I beg pardon. Who sets preconditions upon whom? Is this Poland, or is this Israel? Note also that Jews had been welcomed into Poland centuries earlier when they had to flee other nations. Finally, Jews were eating Polish bread and butter, and were making money (some in considerable amounts) off the Poles. So the "Jews owed Poles nothing" notion does not wash. In fact, it sounds very Judeocentric if not positively selfish.

Anna Zawadzka dusts off the "Jews had it bad" spin, which sounds like an attorney trying to excuse the criminality of his client by saying that "He had an unpleasant life". Anybody can make up such a sob-story argument. Recall how Germans excused their support for Nazism by saying that they "had it bad" under the Versailles accords.

And "bad" in comparison with what? The average Jew in Poland was better off than the average Pole, and Jews as a whole enjoyed complete religious and cultural autonomy. 1918-era Hungary is especially instructive. Jews there had enjoyed a relatively high standard of living, and there had been no pogroms. Yet this did not prevent Hungarian Jews from massively supporting Communism in 1918-1919. So the "Jews had it bad" notion collapses.

The author continues to clutch at straws as she repeats the old saw that Jewish Communists were not really Jews. Oh, please! That's like saying that Lenin was "not a real Russian" or that the Nazis "were not real Germans". For more on this, see comments.

Anna Zawadzka abandons any semblance of historical perspective as she brings up an assortment of copouts (e. g., the ghetto benches: p. 258), all of which came long AFTER Jews had been been massively over-represented in Communism. Even then, her reasoning is totally flippant. For instance, what is supposed to be so inherently terrible about the ghetto benches when Jews themselves regularly engaged in segregated seating at the time (high-status Jews sitting apart from "ordinary" Jews, and women sitting apart from men, in synagogues)?

JEWISH INFLUENCE IN COMMUNISM WAS FAR GREATER THAN ANY “GROCERY LIST” OF JEWISH COMMUNISTS

We keep hearing that Jews at no time constituted a majority of the leadership in Communism. This is technically true, but it does not tell the whole story.

Refer to: Esau's Tears: Modern Anti-Semitism and the Rise of the Jews, by Albert S. Lindemann:

To begin with, Jewish Communists were noted for their high intelligence, verbal skills, assertiveness, ideological fervor, etc. (p. 429).

Not surprisingly, few non-Jewish Communist leaders approached the caliber of the Jewish Communist leaders. For example, Lindemann reminds us that, “Jewish or gentilized, Trotsky was a man of unusual talents.” (p. 447). In addition, “Trotsky’s paramount role in the revolution cannot be denied…” (p. 448). This can be generalized, “Other non-Jews might be mentioned but almost certainly do not quite measure up to Trotsky, Zinoviev, Kamenev, Yoffe, Sverdlov, Uritsky, or Radek in visibility inside Russia and abroad, especially not in the crucial years from 1917 to 1921.” (p. 432).

Finally, influential Jews did not have to act alone. In fact, Jews had the skill of influencing non-Jews to think in Jewish ways. Lenin can validly be understood as a “Jewified gentile” (pp. 432-433). The same can be said for the renegade-Pole Dzerzhinsky (p. 442, 446), as well as the Russian Kalinin, who was called by Jewish Bolsheviks “more Jewish than the Jews”. (p. 433).

I. JEWISH COMMUNISTS INFLUENCED NON-JEWS TO GO ALONG WITH THEIR THINKING

Let us elaborate on Feliks Dzerzhinsky. Refer to: The Cheka: Lenin's Political Police:

Author 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).

The strong Jewish influence very much extended to Dzerzhinsky’s personal life. Leggett continues, “Goldman’s sister, Julia, was for several years Dzerzhinsky’s romantic love…formed a deeply romantic attachment, lasting from 1905 to early 1910, for another Jewish woman, Sabina Feinstein, sister of a prominent SDKPiL member. Very soon afterwards, in November 1910, Dzerzhinsky married Sofia Sigizmundovna nee Mushkat, who was likewise Jewish…” (p. 25).

As if to underscore the fact that Jewish influence in Communism is much greater than just the "grocery list" of Jewish Communists, Leggett writes of "Rosa Luxemburg [Luksemburg], celebrated for her intellectual brilliance and her political passion." (p. 24). So intoxicated had "Bloody Feliks" ("KRWAWE FELEK") Dzierzinski become of Luksemburg's ideas that he actually clashed with Lenin on the resurrection of the Polish state. Only that it was the non-Pole Lenin supporting the restoration of the Polish nation and renegade-Pole Dzerzhinsky opposing it, in accordance with Luxemburg. (pp. 23-24).

The foregoing can be generalized. Refer to: The Crucifixion of Russia: A History of the Russians and the Jews A new English translation of Solzhenitsyn’s 200 Years Together.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn comments, “The February Revolution was carried out by Russian hands and Russian foolishness. Yet at the same time, its ideology was permeated and dominated by the intransigent hostility to the historical Russian state that ordinary Russians didn’t have, but the Jews had. So the Russian intelligentsia too had adopted this view.” (p. 98).

V. COMMUNISM PERMEATED MUCH OF PRE-WWII JEWISH THINKING, NOTABLY IN POLAND

Refer to: Flags Over the Warsaw Ghetto

(My Review was Feb 12, 2012)

Moshe Arens wrote: "The years preceding World War II were a time when Socialists throughout the world were preaching the `class struggle' and `solidarity of the proletariat.' Many of them, not only avowed Communists, saw the Soviet Union as the pioneer and leader of this `struggle.' This was also true in Palestine, where the Socialist Zionists had achieved a dominant position in the Jewish community." (p. 7). The so-called "proletarian" camp included the Socialist Zionists and the non-Socialist Bund. (p. 9). Arens notes: "The Socialist Zionist movements, attached to Marxist ideology..." (p. 44). ZOB leader Anielewicz was a member of Hashomer Hatzair with its "Marxist approach to Zionism". (p. 113). Hashomer Hatzair and Left Po'alei Zion showed their true colors (pardon the pun) in preferring that the red flag be hoisted over the fighting Ghetto instead of the blue-white Zionist flag. (p. 287).

ZOB leader Hersh Berlinski exhibited undisguised disloyalty to Poland as he said that his support was to the USSR over Poland. (p. 142). As for the Warsaw Ghetto rank-and-file soldiers, Arens refers to them as: "...younger generation, their orthodox Marxist thinking giving rigidity to their arguments." (p. 106). Who can blame Poles for their reluctance to support the Uprising owing to its taint of Communism? (p. 71; 200-201; 226)

YES, VIRGINIA, JEWISH COMMUNISTS WERE STILL JEWS

The notion that Jewish Communists are not really Jews, or were rejected by the Jewish community, are old and still-common exculpations, but are totally false. Nor is it true that Communism was something marginal among Jews.

The following links are solely to Jewish sources, reviewed by me:
.

I. The Jewish over-involvement in Communism was a direct outgrowth of Jewish cultural and literary traditions:

Jewish Radicals and Radical Jews

II. The Yiddishist movement was strongly tainted with Communism--a taint that went far beyond formal affiliation with Communist movements:

The Tragedy of a Generation: The Rise and Fall of Jewish Nationalism in Eastern Europe

Jewish Schools in Poland, 1919-39: Their Philosophy and Development

III. Communism was widely seen, in the Jewish community, not as a rejection of Judaism, but as a secular fulfillment of Jewish messianism:

The Old Country: The Lost World of East European Jews

Dreams of Nationhood: American Jewish Communists and the Soviet Birobidzhan Project, 1924-1951 (Jewish Identities in Post-Modern Society)

IV. Many Soviet Communist Jews practiced circumcision, kosher, etc. To them, Judaism was an ethnicity, not a religion:

Becoming Soviet Jews: The Bolshevik Experiment in Minsk (The Modern Jewish Experience)

The Shtetl: New Evaluations (Elie Wiesel Center for Judaic Studies Series)

V. Jewish Communists who did not observe ANY Jewish practices lived and thought in terms of an alternative Judaism, not a rejection of Judaism:

The Non-Jewish Jew

VI. Even the most unconventional and militantly anti-religious Soviet Jewish Communists (the Yevsektsiya) were buried in Jewish cemeteries:

The Jews of the Soviet Union: The History of a National Minority (Cambridge Russian, Soviet and Post-Soviet Studies)

VII. The State of Israel freely welcomes Jewish Communists as valid Jews. For instance, U. B. (Bezpieka) murderer Salomon Morel was exempted from facing justice for the torture and murder of thousands of Poles:

In the 1930s, Jewish Leaders Governed the Soviet Concentration Camp System (GULAGs) and the Dreaded Secret Police (NKVD). In Addition, Jews Played Key Roles in: 1). The Great Famine (HOLODOMOR (1932-1933)--The Genocidal Starvation of Millions of Ukrainians); 2) The Genocide-By-Shooting of Over 200,000 Soviet Poles during the Great Terror (1937-1938); and 3) The Decision to Murder Tens of Thousands of Poland’s Brightest and Best at Katyn (1940), etc.:
