Holocaust Forgotten or Revisited

Through the Eyes of a Survivor

Monday, November 2, 2009
Nina Gruetz-Morecki was a gentile-looking well-to-do Polish Jew from Lwow (Lvov, Lviv). She describes prewar life, the Soviet occupation, the German occupation, the Nazi extermination of the local Jews, her disguise as a gentile, her work on behalf of an unidentified branch of the Polish Underground, her escape and peregrinations, and her eventual travels to postwar western Europe and the USA. >>more...

Architects of Annihilation: Auschwitz and the Logic of Destruction

Friday, October 30, 2009
This eye-opening book, written by a German scholar, goes beyond Nazi anti-Semitism and racism as the sole explanations for German genocidal policies. The Reich had reduced humans to economic commodities.

German economists, as elaborated by Aly, had studied Poland and come to the conclusion that her inefficiencies had been caused by a combination of Polish mismanagement and Jewish economic dominance. (pp. 53-59; see also p. 230). There was "overpopulation" (p. 43, 54, etc.), defined as follows: "Consequently, they would be consuming the theoretically possible surpluses that could otherwise have been invested in increasing the national income or promoting industrialization". (p. 60) >>more...

The OUN-UPA Genocide of Poles: Early Descriptions from Polish and Ukrainian Documents, December 26, 2008

Friday, October 30, 2009
TITLE: The Anti-Polish Actions of the Ukrainian Nationalists of Little Eastern Poland in the Light of Documents...). Unlike many other works which rely on recollections years and decades after the events, this one consists of documents which date to the very years of this genocide. This rules out the possibility of the many massacres of Poles documented in this work being later inventions, and contrasts with some Ukrainian works of the 1990's which describe never-before-heard-of Polish atrocities against Ukrainians that are likely fabricated. >>more...

Ukrainian Fascism (OUN-UPA): Genocide of Jews and Poles (1941-1947)

Friday, October 30, 2009
The list author says: "Fascism...genocide...collaboration...The OUN, a group of Ukrainian fascists (whose eventual goal was a totalitarian, ethnically-pure pan-Ukrainian empire) sought a Ukrainian-Nazi puppet state. Never promised it, they blindly collaborated with the Nazis in the genocide of Jews, and then killed 180,000-300,000 Poles (limited only by Polish defenses) and thousands of independent-minded Ukrainians. >>more...

Ethnic Cleansing in Twentieth Century Europe(revue)

Friday, October 30, 2009
A Comprehensive Though Germanocentric Work: Includes the WWII Ukrainian-Fascist OUN-UPA Genocide of Poles, October 27, 2009 This extensive anthology is broad-based, with chapters on many different acts of ethnic cleansing and genocide. We learn that the Iroquois annihilated the Hurons and then attempted the same against the French. (Dreisziger, pp. 47-49). In the Boer War, British concentration camps held 116,000 Afrikaners (30,000 died) and 100,000 blacks (14,000 died). (Tooley, p. 73). Let's keep things in perspective. Tooley writes: "As noted, the Soviet regime cleansed more ethnic groups than any regime in history." (p. 87). >>more...

The Warsaw Ghetto and Holocaust from a Religious-Jewish Perspective

Friday, September 4, 2009
This work is rich in Jewish terminology, traditional Jewish ideation, and cries to God and man for deliverance during the unfolding Holocaust. In contrast to most Holocaust-era diaries, it also offers an unusual amount of biographical detail on the leading Jewish secular and especially religious leaders of the time. Many interesting details are provided, such as the debate as to whether Polish Jews were the descendants of Khazars, or of erstwhile German Jews that had lived along the Rhine. (p. 110). >>more...

A Pre-Holocaust Jewish View of German-Nazi Occupied Poland

Friday, September 4, 2009
Because this fact-filled book was written just before the Holocaust, it escaped coloration by it. Quoting from the ECONOMIST about German attitudes towards the untermenschen, Segal wrote: “The Nazis appear to regard the Polish race in rather the same way they regard the Jews. Unlike the blood of the Scandinavians or the Anglo-Saxons, the blood of the Poles is not only negatively inferior in that it is not German, it is positively pernicious. The Poles cannot by losing their separate racial consciousness become merged in the Germanic blood stream. They must be rejected by the healthy Teutonic body as the Jews are rejected.” (pp. 74-75). >>more...

The Bravest Battle: The Twenty-eight Days Of The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

Monday, August 17, 2009
The author includes a day-to-day account of the Uprising, and his bibliography is very extensive. He factors the ZZW as well as the ZOB, and gives seldom-mentioned credit to Polish-gentile fighters such as Wolinski and Iwanski, who admittedly are not usually appreciated. (p. 348). WARNING: The descriptions of German cruelties may upset sensitive readers >>more...

Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust: Proceedings of the Conference on Manifestations of Jewish Resistance, Jerusalem, April 7-11, 1968

Monday, August 17, 2009
Jewish Policies, Polish Underground and the Jews, Assumed Pogroms, etc., July 13, 2009 This work is not limited to military action. For instance, the 1930's boycott of Hitler was a form of Jewish anti-Nazi resistance. (p. 88). Much interesting information is provided in this volume. For instance, German Jews constituted only 0.8% of Germany's population. (p. 101). During the Holocaust itself, Jews in mixed Jewish-GermThis work is not limited to military action.

Holocaust ;Fail to rescue

Sunday, August 2, 2009
Aid to European Jewry during the Second World War can only be dealt with in the context of the general war aims of the Allies. At all times the main concern of Britain and France, and then the United States, was the preservation of their empires and the capitalist system. The Soviet Union had no quarrel with this vision, except where its own troops actually penetrated Central Europe. London and Paris entered the war on the defensive, fearing both victory and defeat: the First World War had led to the collapse of four empires and the rise of Communism.   >>more...
