Holocaust Forgotten or Revisited

Pavement of Hell: Three Leaders of the Judenrat

Wednesday, March 31, 2010
This three-part book focuses on the lives of Chaim Rumkowski (Rumkovsky) of the Lodz (Litzmannstadt) Ghetto, Adam Czerniakow of the Warsaw Ghetto, and Jacob Gens of the Vilna (Wilno, Vilnius) Ghetto. Tushnet consistently brings up examples of behaviors in these men that were variously harmful and at other times helpful towards fellow Jews facing the unfolding Holocaust. He also cites a selection of Jewish opinions on the character of these Judenrat leaders >>more...

Liliana's journal: Warsaw 1939-1945

Thursday, March 25, 2010
In common with countless Jewish and Polish eyewitnesses, the author describes the indiscriminate bombing and strafing of defenseless Polish civilians, by the Luftwaffe, during the German-Soviet conquest of Poland in 1939. (p. 11). She recognizes the fact that the Volksdeutschen were Poles of German descent. (p. 18). >>more...

Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and Rare Jewish Acknowledgement of the Communist GL-AL Killing Fugitive Jews,

Thursday, March 25, 2010
While describing the events that led up to and included the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising (1943), the author frequently mentions the many forms of Polish aid to Jews. (p. 19, 21, 45, 59, 68, 80, 88, 95, 98, 136). This included help from members of the Policja Granatowa (Polish Blue Police)(p. 63, 71), which has at times been misrepresented as a mostly collaborationist force. >>more...

Between tumbling walls

Saturday, March 20, 2010
This book is unusual in several respects. It contains a diary of life in Warsaw--not in the Warsaw Ghetto before the Jewish Uprising, but covert life in Aryan Warsaw after this Uprising. (pp. 115-157). >>more...

Disaster Archaeology

Wednesday, March 3, 2010
This work raises many topics, two of which I emphasize here. It delves into such things as 911-victim remains, fire victims, cannibalism, ethnoarchaeology, shipwrecks, individual and mass murders, etc. The reader will encounter many interesting facts. For instance, the failure of cadaver dogs to locate buried human remains does not rule out their local presence. (p. 152 >>more...

Change of heart

Wednesday, March 3, 2010
Recently Professor Krzysztof Jasiewicz had a change of heart in contrast to what he wrote in 2001 in a book entitled “First after the devil,” (“Pierwsi po diable”). It is a symbolic change of heart of a Polish historians. The book “First after the devil” mentioned as supposedly typical Polish exaggerations in the reports of massive Jewish collaboration in the imposition of Soviet rule in postwar Poland >>more...

The Warsaw getto uprising ( untold story) and the Poles

Tuesday, February 16, 2010
Without the help of the Poles we couldn’t have started the uprising.”
Marek Edelman, the last surviving leader of the ghetto revolt.

Germans Create a Ghetto in Warsaw Jews and Poles Are Forcibly Relocated
Polish-Jewish relations did not take a dramatic turn for the worse after the German invasion. The suffering of the Jews aroused compassion and solidarity among many Poles, who themselves experienced German brutality on a daily basis. Wehrmacht General Johannes von Blaskowitz, in a report to General Walther von Brauchitsch, Commander-in-Chief of the German Army:
[February 6, 1940]: The acts of violence carried out in public against Jews are arousing in religious Poles [literally, “in the Polish population, which is fundamentally pious (or God-fearing)”] not only the deepest disgust but also a great sense of pity for the Jewish population. >>more...

Against German Guilt-Dilution for the Holocaust: The Irrelevance of Locals' Anti-Semitism,

Sunday, December 27, 2009
This work presents many topics, and I can only discuss a few. Elie Monk, the rabbi of Ansbacher, had believed that Judaism and Nazism could be compatible: "'I reject the teachings of Marxism from a Jewish standpoint and commit myself to National Socialism without its anti-Semitic components. Without anti-Semitism National Socialism would find in the tradition-bound Jews its most loyal followers.'" (p. 97). However, it is fallacious to consider Nazism as simply extreme conservatism. In fact, many German conservatives opposed Nazism. (p. 31, 57, 60). >>more...

Tuesday, November 3, 2009
A tide of anti-Polish campaign has swept through Polish media over the recent months that fell in line with the attempts to hold all Polish people accountable for the mass murder perpetrated on the Jews of Jedwabne in July 1941. The publication of 'Neighbours', an extremely biased and deceitful book by the Jewish American sociologist Jan Tomasz Gross, served as pretext. The Jewish author, disregarding the findings of the prosecutor's office, cramming lots of lies and distortions of truth in his generalisations based on a few twisted and dubious testimonies, sets out to put the blame for the massacre on the local Poles and play down the German involvement . >>more...
