O (nie)pomaganiu Żydom. Cena strachu – Marek Jan Chodakiewicz

Saturday, January 5, 2013
Lord Jim przestraszył się raz. Uciekł, nie pomógł innym. Przestraszył się, bowiem groziła mu pewna śmierć. Potem całe życie płacił za to własnym szalonym bohaterstwem. Dokonał wyboru, aby zawsze ryzykować wszystko dla innych i tym sposobem zmyć plamę na własnym sumieniu. To był sposób na odkupienie. Lord Jim to naturalnie postać literacka, ale Joseph Conrad wymyślił go sobie nie jako przeciętnego zjadacza chleba, lecz jako osobę wybitną. Mimo to jego bohater przestraszył się, gdy stanął w obliczu śmierci. Miał wybór i raz wybrał ucieczkę. Potem nadludzkim wysiłkiem woli zdyscyplinował się i ze świadomą pogardą śmierci wybrał postawę zupełnie przeciwną. >>more...

"Bloody Sunday", German Fifth Column, and the Myth of Polish Massacres of Germans August 14, 2009 By Jan Peczkis TOP 1000 REVIEWER

Thursday, December 20, 2012

This work has enduring value. Consistent with revisionist attempts to convert Germans from aggressors into victims, the existence of a German fifth column is commonly denied. (p. 10, 50). [Also by Alfred Maurice de Zayas]. Goebbels' lie about 60,000 German civilians massacred by Poles is still sometimes repeated. >>more...

The hero who voluntarily infiltrated Auschwitz

Thursday, November 29, 2012
Historical experience demonstrates that the vast majority of people would not voluntarily enter hell. In the mid-20th century, aside from the Gulag, that would be German Nazi concentration camps. One individual actually volunteered for such a suicidal operation, the heroic Witold Pilecki. He was a uniquely courageous and daring individual. This patriotic Pole and underground soldier infiltrated KL Auschwitz in one of the most daring intelligence gathering operations of the Second World War. After his escape from the camp nearly three years later, he fought the German Nazis during the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. Pilecki subsequently snuck into Poland to combat the Communists after the war, and was executed by the country's Soviet-controlled puppet regime. >>more...

Operacja "Jedwabne": Mity i fakty (Polish Edition)

Sunday, November 11, 2012
OPERATION "JEDWABNE": MYTHS AND FACTS, is the title of this Polish-language book. Owing to the vintage of this book, much of its information has been expanded upon, and will generally not be repeated here. See, for instance, The Massacre in Jedwabne, July 10, 1941: Before, During, After (read also the Peczkis review). >>more...

Experiencing and Surviving the German Death Camp at Treblinka, October 10, 2012 Treblinka

Monday, October 15, 2012
Jankiel (Yankiel) Wiernik is one of the few Jewish forced laborers at Treblinka to have escaped from this Nazi German factory of death, and lived to tell the world about it. He had various jobs at the camp, including the construction of more and ever-larger gas chambers (p. 18). There is no reason for questioning the veracity of what Wiernik has written. He reports the emanation of steam from intertwined layers of corpses on a hot day (p. 39). [Decomposition of bodies is an exothermic reaction]. Either Wiernik had arcane knowledge of the chemistry of putrefaction, or he actually saw what he claimed to have seen. >>more...

The Righteous Among the Nations: Rescuers of Jews During the Holocaust

Thursday, August 16, 2012
This large book contains few-page testimonies each of over a hundred rescuers of Jews of assorted nationalities. The rescuers' accounts are listed alphabetically by name. There is also an index in which the rescuers are sorted by nationality. The rescuers represented are not according to frequency of rescuers overall by nationality. (As of January 1, 2012, there are more Polish rescuers than that of any other nationality, even though the number of eastern European rescuers is strongly undercounted. And no, the abundance of Polish rescuers does not follow from the abundance of Polish Jews. To the contrary: Unlike the situation in western Europe, all but a small percentage of Polish Jews had been locked away by the Germans in ghettos, where they were beyond the reach of otherwise Polish rescuers). >>more...

The Auschwitz Volunteer: Beyond Bravery

Monday, June 25, 2012
Instead of repeating information presented by other reviewers, I mainly focus mainly on matters not mentioned by them, especially insofar as they shed little-known insights on the function of Nazi Germans in general and the Auschwitz Concentration/Death Camp in particular. WARNING: The descriptions of German cruelties are graphic, and may upset the sensitive reader. >>more...
