Holocaust Forgotten or Revisited


Friday, March 17, 2017
Author Elmer Berger, a rabbi and anti-Zionist Jew, considers the actions of the State of Israel to be incompatible with the humanitarian teachings of Judaism. However, it is his analysis of Zionists and the media, in the USA, that overshadows everything else, and that is the subject of my review. Berger's insights have broader implications, and I later touch on some of these. >>more...

The Holocaust and the Human Spirit; “Choiceless Choice”

Sunday, March 5, 2017
There are books that become known less for their content, and more for an idea that they had introduced or popularized. This book is one of them. Lawrence L. Langer and his “Choiceless Choice” has become part of Holocaustpeak, thanks in large part to this book. My review exclusively focuses on this.


An American Understanding:Holocaust

Sunday, March 5, 2017
A strength of this book is its history of the emergence of Holocaust dominance in the USA. Lipstadt comments, “By the late 1950s “Holocaust” was increasingly being used in conjunction with the murder of the Jews, but it still did not have the singular connotation it has today.” (p. 12). “By the end of the decade [1960s] the word had become firmly associated with the Third Reich’s murder of the Jews.” (p. 13). >>more...

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...

The Holocaust Industry;Getting Money From the Germans. Got a Good Thing Going, So Why Stop With the Germans? For Poland: PEDAGOGIKA WSTYDU

Monday, February 20, 2017
The trend nowadays is to redefine non-German European nations (notably Poland) as co-perpetrators of the Holocaust (or at least "complicit in the Holocaust") for rather obvious reasons. For an update of Finkelstein, please click on, and read my detailed English-language review, of Nie musimy placic Zydom!. It is clear that, individual exceptions aside, the Poles owe the Jews nothing. All Jewish demands, for compensation for Jewish properties lost during the German-made Holocaust, had been satisfied in 1952 and 1960. >>more...

A Surplus of Memory

Monday, February 20, 2017
" I don't think there's any need to analyze the Uprising in military terms. This was a war of less than a thousand people against a mighty army, and no one doubted how it was likely to turn out. This isn't a subject for study in a military school. Not the weapons, not the operations, not the tactics. If there's a school to study the human spirit, there it should be a major subject. The really important things were inherent in the force shown by Jewish youths, after years of degradation, to rise up against their destroyers and determine what death they would choose: Treblinka or Uprising. >>more...

The Construction of European Holocaust Memory: German and Polish Cinema after 1989Effectively--Though Subtly--Puts Poles and Nazi Germans on the Same Side

Sunday, January 15, 2017
Author Malgorzata Pakier introduces her book as follows, “In recent years, commemoration of the Holocaust has become a major political, cultural, and educational issue for the European Union…There is no other historical event to which European institutions have demonstrated any comparable deep commitment. It is manifest in such initiatives as the European Parliament’s ‘Resolution on Remembrance of the Holocaust, Antisemitism, and Racism’ approved on January 27, 2005, the sixtieth anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, and in the adoption of legislation criminalizing denial of the Holocaust at the level of the European Union under the German presidency in April 2007. The European Union has also played a key role in setting up the Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, launched on the occasion of the International Forum on the Holocaust, which took place in Stockholm in 2000.” (p. 9). >>more...

Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil;Jews--and Not Poles---Who Collaborated With the Nazis, Were Decisive in the Destruction of Europe's Jews by the Germans (Nazis)

Sunday, January 15, 2017
This classic provides a wealth of information, and upends many of the Holocaust myths that have accreted in the over-50 years since this work was written by the courageous Jewish author. Though relatively old, Jewish author Hannah Arendt's work goes a long way towards undoing the mystification of the Holocaust. >>more...

Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar by Montefiore, Simon Sebag (April 13, 2004The Crucial Jewish Complicity in the Decision to Murder Tens of Thousands of Polish Officers at Katyn,

Sunday, January 15, 2017
Why bring up this subject? Because Jews commonly say that Poles have to "Face up to the dark chapters in their history" and to "Come to terms with the past." What is good for the goose is good for the gander. >>more...
