Jewish assimilation

Wednesday, May 27, 2015
The obvious theme of this work is Polish-Ukrainian-Jewish coexistence in Lwow (Lviv). This work is full of information, and I focus on a few items of historical--rather than cultural--interest.


Lwow (Lviv) was not founded by Danylo, as commonly taught. It long had preceded him. In fact, it is much older than anyone had imagined. Archeological evidence, cited from a Ukrainian-language source, indicates that the site of Lviv has been continuously inhabited since the 5th century A. D. (Yaroslav Hrytsak, p. 48).

Jedwabne Massacre June 25 1941, July 10 1941 (Board book)summary of facts

Wednesday, March 11, 2015
The author's father lived in Jedwabne. (p. 149). This book assembles a great deal of information about this subject. Owing to the fact that much has been already written about it, I focus on new and little-known information instead of repeating previously-discussed well-known information. >>more...

  The author describes her prewar life in Nowogrodek, Poland, and includes both sociological and biographical information. As with my other reviews, I emphasize matters of persistent relevance in the understanding of Polish-Jewish relations. >>more...

Soviet Jews as Victimizers and Victims of Communism

Sunday, August 17, 2014
This review is from: The Jews of the Soviet Union: The History of a National Minority (Cambridge Russian, Soviet and Post-Soviet Studies) (Paperback) Israeli Jewish author Benjamin Pinkus begins with a history of Jews in Russia. Instead of solely blaming Christianity for the negative aspects of Jewish-Christian relations, he also points to the role of Jewish-Christian disputations, Jewish proselytism, and Judaizing sects. (pp. 4-5). As for the 1881-1906 pogroms in tsarist Russia, Pinkus believes that many of them occurred on too geographic an organized scale to be without some degree of government influence behind them. (pp. 28-31). >>more...

Wspomnienia Dawne i NoweAn Eyewitness Polish Railroad Stationmaster to the Threshold of the Treblinka German Death Camp,

Wednesday, October 9, 2013
RECOLLECTIONS OLD AND NEW is the title of this Polish-language book. Considering all the non-English Holocaust-related books that have been translated into English, it is a wonder that this one has not been thus translated in its entirety. I focus primarily on matters that have not been raised in translated excerpts from this book. >>more...

Frontline: Shtetl

Tuesday, October 25, 2011
Marian Marzynski has produced a long and tedious film that not only exhibits a pronounced Polonoophobic slant, but fails to inform the viewer about the proper context of the tragic events that took place. A much better and objective source of information about Shtetl life, in my opinion, is the book SHTETL, by Eva Hoffman >>more...

Zegotain the Context of German-Enslaved Poland: Holocaust Misconceptions Corrected

Thursday, May 5, 2011
The title of the book does not do full justice to itscontent. It provides a broad overview of the German terror directed againstboth Poles and Jews. Much of the content on Zegota is repeated from theirearlier book (see my review of LINK) and will not be repeated here.  Against the misconception that Zegota wasmerely the work of a handful of altruistic individuals, the authors stress thefact that it was a full-fledged, widely-deployed operation of the PolishUnderground Home Army (Armia Krajowa: A.K.)(e. g., p. 25, 35, 69, 94). >>more...

Saturday, February 12, 2011
            Contemporary Polish-Jewish relations resemble to a vicious circle. Each side blames each other for misbehavior and brings up to each other the crimes often never committed, or just for the perceptions of it. >>more...
