Holocaust Forgotten or Revisited

Ignorancja Czy Arogancja Ludwika Stommy o Handlu Złotymi Zębami w Sachsenhausen

Tuesday, November 8, 2011
Ludwik Stomma zadaje pytanie w artykule „Nieczystości rzucane na szaniec” w „Polityce” z 10-23 października 2011: „Szkoda, ze autor nie podaje, po jakim kursie Żydzi w obozach sprzedawali strażnikom złoto i dlaczego praktyczni esesmani nie wybudowali kantorów, żeby proceder usprawnić?” Czy takie pytanie jest dowodem arogancji czy ignorancji?. W czasie Drugiej Wojny Światowej Niemcy więzili osiemnaście milionów cywilów, w tym ponad pięć milionów Żydów. W perspektywie ludzkiego cierpienia można zauważyć, że masowe morderstwo 3,7 milionów jeńców sowieckich zamorzonych na śmierć dotyczy większej liczby ofiar niż na przykład liczba 3,06 miliona Żydów zamordowanych w komorach gazowych. Około 1,2 miliona Żydów było zastrzelonych przez Einsatzgrupen oraz pół miliona Żydów zginęło w obozach koncentracyjnych oraz pół miliona w gettach. Ofiary żydowskie były częścią 25 milionów cywilów nie kombatantów zabitych w czasie Drugiej Wojny Światowej. >>more...

Gold Teeth as Nazi Non-Bullion Gold

Monday, October 31, 2011
During WWII  the German civilian camp system held eighteen million inmates of which over five million were Jews. In the perspective of human suffering one should note that the number of 3.5 million Soviet prisoners of war starved to death was larger than the number of 3.06 million Jews murdered in the Nazi gas chambers in the extermination camps. An additional 1.2 million Jews were killed by the Einsatzgrupen  (Atrocity Troups) and one half of a million Jews were killed in each in the main concentration camps, or died in the ghettos including those who were killed during transport. The Jewish victims were a part of the 25 million non-combat civilians killed during WWII. 

An Eye-Opening Expose of Jan Tomasz Gross and the Agenda behind Him,

Monday, September 26, 2011
This Polish-language book is titled: 100 FALSEHOODS OF J. T. GROSS ON JEDWABNE AND THE JEWISH NEIGHBORS. It is nothing less than a mini-encyclopedia of prewar Polish-Jewish relations, and it's a shame that this work hasn't been translated into English. The objective reader, whether or not in agreement with Jerzy Robert Nowak, will have to recognize that Nowak has written a much more scholarly book than any of the Polonophobic screeds of Jan Gross. >>more...

Jedwabne Eyewitnesses Debunk the Falsehoods of Jan T. Gross,

Monday, September 5, 2011
JEDWABNE AS SEEN BY EYEWITNESSES is the title of this Polish-language book, whose author is a Polish priest.

When the Soviets invaded the area in 1939 as part of the German-Soviet conquest of Poland, eyewitness Janina Biedrzycka reports seeing many of Jedwabne's Jews collaborating with the Soviets in the identification and mass arrests of Poles. (p. 14). Eyewitness Genowefa Malczynska recounts how her home had been approached, at night, by two NKVD men and two Jews working for them. (p. 55). More on this later. >>more...

Conflicts Across the Atlantic: Essays on Polish-Jewish Relations in the United States During World War I and in the Interwar Years

Monday, September 5, 2011
The informed reader of this scholarly work may be struck by the similarities that exist between post-WWII attacks on Poland, which center on Polish conduct during the Holocaust, and similar attacks around the time of WWI. They are amazing.

Since time immemorial, a profound disconnect has existed between the two communities, both in Poland and the USA. Kapiszewski cites a 1906 study by Beatrice Baskerville, who wrote: "`Which side was the more to blame at the beginning...it is difficult to say...there has been a good deal to forgive on both sides, and today, at any rate, Jews are as anti-Polish as the Poles are anti-Semitic. Jews do not want to assimilate, they do not want to blend their interests with the interests of the rest of the community. They are striving to assert their national individually, to live their own lives and attain their own ends, all three of which, are as far removed from Slavonic ideals as the twilight from dawn, as night from day.'" (p. 25). >>more...

I Am Alive :The horrifying eye witness account of Auschwitz & Birkenau

Sunday, August 28, 2011
An Eyewitness Auschwitz Account by a Jewish Survivor; Enjoyment and Gallows Humor in the Face of the Horrors, June 22, 2011 This review is from: I Am Alive :The horrifying eye witness account of Auschwitz & Birkenau (Hardcover) My review is based on the original (1961) edition. Kitty Hart was a Polish Jew who had lived in Bielsko (Bielitz) in then SW Poland. During the 1939 German-Soviet conquest of Poland, she observed German fifth column activity. Germans shot at Poles from rooftops, rioted in the streets, etc. (p. 14). In common with countless eyewitnesses, Hart reported Luftwaffe planes strafing columns of defenseless refugees. (p. 15). >>more...

A Narrow Bridge to Life: Jewish Slave Labor and Survival in the Gross-Rosen Camp System, 1940-1945

Sunday, August 28, 2011
The Nazis started to use foreigners for forced labor in 1939 (p. 69), but especially from 1940. Goebbels stated that "Roma [Gypsies], Jews, and Poles will receive identical treatment" in this regard. (p. 13).

The concentration camp at Gross Rosen (now Rogoznica), like Auschwitz, was not originally built for Jews. (p. 78). As was the case with Auschwitz, Poles comprised most of its original WWII inmates. (p. 69). Later, Poles comprised 60-65% of inmates in 1942 and 45% of inmates in 1944. (p. 77). (My father, Kazimierz Peczkis, as well as my onetime dentist since I was a child, Charles Brachmanski, had been inmates of Gross Rosen.). After the fall of the Soviet-betrayed Warsaw Uprising, Poles again became a large majority of the inmates at Gross Rosen. According to Gutterman, the Poles, by their obvious spirit of defiance against the Nazis, raised the morale of the Jewish inmates. (p. 94) >>more...

The author lived in Radzyn, Poland. Soon after his birth in 1918, his family went through pogroms, which he describes as follows: "The violence was unpredictable. Sometimes, it would move across an entire region like a storm rumbling across an open plain. Other times, it was local, contained within a city or town. Sparked by a single incident, an unkind word, a bad business transaction, a simple rumor, the violence would flare for days." (p. 5). [The American reader can see close parallels with past episodes of U.S. racial violence. It could be local or nationwide. Nearly always, it was some perceived "us vs. them" incident, such as a black harming a white, or a white harming a black, that triggered it.] >>more...

Eichmann in my hands

Monday, May 30, 2011
The reader gets a summary of the unfolding Holocaust, and Eichmann's central role in it. Mass ghettoization gave way to mass shootings, which in turn gave way to mass gassings. Eichmann was especially involved in the destruction of Hungary's Jews just as the Red Army was on the outskirts of Budapest. Hungarian Jew Kastner (Kasztner), who made a deal with Eichmann, is mentioned as a "notorious name in Israel." (p. 227). >>more...

4.0 out of 5 stars A Jewish Member of the A. K., Warsaw Ghetto Uprising Remarks, and Pole-on-Pole Looting

Monday, May 30, 2011
Zdzislaw Przygoda was an assimilated Polish Jew who eventually joined the Underground Armia Krajowa (A. K., or AK). His job in the A. K. was to hide escapees of all sorts and to give them false identification papers. (p. 57-on). The Gestapo caught him, but he managed to survive the war in various camps. Earlier, he had been an eyewitness to German terror bombing of defenseless Polish civilians during the 1939 war. (p. 39). >>more...
