Outreach (Contentious Issues: War of Cultures)


Wednesday, March 22, 2017
This volume tells little about the modus operandi of the hated Bezpieka, which is generally euphemized as the Polish Ministry of Public Security, and focuses almost entirely on personages >>more...

Jews willing executioniers in Stalin's hands

Sunday, March 19, 2017
LEADING SOVIET JEWISH COMMUNISTS: NEITHER SUBSERVIENT TO, NOR DOMINANT TOWARDS, LEADING SOVIET NON-JEWISH COMMUNISTS Jewish involvement in the Communist elite of the USSR can be seen as a variation on an ancient theme in Jewish culture rather than a new one sprung from the special circumstances of the Bolshevik Revolution. Rather than being the willing agents of exploitative non-Jewish elites who were clearly separated from both the Jews and the people they ruled, Jews became an entrenched part of an exploitative and oppressive elite in which group boundaries were blurred. (p. 68). >>more...

Behind the limit of the solidaity :Plish-Jewish relations

Tuesday, January 24, 2017
To anyone who has carefully examined this work, and heard Ewa Kurek speak (I have), it is obvious that her level of knowledge is far above that of the usual authors on this subject >>more...

THE INTERNAL SECURITY CORPS AND THE "CURSED SOLDIERS" is the title of this Polish-language work. However, it is about more than the Communist security forces and their repression of the Polish freedom-fighting guerrillas (ZOLNIERZE WYKLECI). It includes much politics, and has a comprehensive index of names that are mentioned. Owing to the large number of topics presented, I discuss only a few of them. >>more...

IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF JEDWABNE;Contrary to the Media Narrative, This IPN Investigation Did Not "Prove Jan T. Gross Right" On Polish Guilt at Jedwabne,

Sunday, January 15, 2017
IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF JEDWABNE is the English-language translation of WOKOL JEDWABNEGO. I review these two volumes because the results of Poland's IPN (Institute of National Remembrance) investigation have been widely misrepresented and iconized by the media.

Owing to the breadth of the content of these volumes, I focus specifically on the barn burning of Jews, and on questions regarding the credibility of the outcomes of court cases early in Communist rule over Poland. Because so much has already been written about Jedwabne, I strive to draw my own conclusions instead of repeating those of others.


In his NEIGHBORS, neo-Stalinist Jan T. Gross had asserted that Poles, acting freely and alone, and with the Germans present only as spectators and photographers, herded the Jews of Jedwabne into a barn and burned them alive. (This is crucial. Gross has tried to backpedal a bit from his original statements.)


The fact that the IPN did NOT "prove Gross correct" is evident from the following English-language summary statement by investigator Pawel Machcewicz, (quote) Another controversy surrounds the role of the Germans who were present at Jedwabne on July 10, 1941 >>more...

Fascism and Communism (European Horizons;Ernst Nolte Is a Non-Judeocompliant Scholar, But is NOT Trying to Lessen the Crimes of Nazism

Sunday, January 15, 2017
By way of introduction, German historian Ernst Nolte has gotten a lot of flak, from the Judeocentric academics, for pointing out that Nazism had been a competitive imitation of Soviet Communism. They do not like it when the genocides of non-Jews are featured, especially in juxtaposition with the Shoah, because this threatens the supremacy of the Holocaust over the genocides of all other peoples. >>more...

Life in Transit: Jews in Postwar Lodz, 1945-1950 (Studies in Russian and Slavic Literatures, Cultures, and HistoryZionists, and Not Polish Anti-Semitism, Drove Most Holocaust-Surviving Jews From Post-WWII Poland,

Sunday, January 15, 2017
The author elaborates on his experiences in Lodz in the years immediately after WWII. He also recounts some of the testimonies of his colleagues, and provides invaluable clues to Jewish political life in postwar Poland. I focus on some pertinent issues.


Kuba Goldberg, born in Lodz, had been an on-and-off acquaintance of author Redlich over many years. Redlich comments, (quote) Kuba studied at the Ignacy Skorupski high school, where almost half of all students were Jewish. “There was no anti-Semitism in our school. There were friendly relations among Polish and Jewish students. These friendships, however, stopped at the school entrance. They never invited each other to their homes.” (unquote). (p. 103). >>more...

Israeli Society, the Holocaust and its Survivors jews and comunists

Wednesday, November 23, 2016
This work begins with basic information on the Holocaust. The reader learns that, although the Nazi decision to exterminate the Jews was not made before spring 1941 (p. 14), Chaim Weizmann had quoted the (possibly talismanic) figure of 6 million Jewish victims, as early as 1939. (p. 13). [The 6 million figure had been suggested decades earlier.] >>more...

The Shtetl: Myth and Reality (Studies in Polish Jewry);Almost-Insurmountable Jewish Economic Dominance. Root Causes of Polish anti-Jewish Hostilities. 1936 Przytyk Pogrom Debate,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
As with other works of the POLIN series, this one presents a lot of information, but often in a skin-deep manner. I focus on a few themes.


The Jews Amongst the Nations: In Defence of the Talmud;A Disappointingly-Brief Talmud Apologetic That Includes the Use of Some Rather Creative Thinking,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
This short (15-page) pamphlet was written in 1934 by Talmudic scholar Joseph Shapotshnick, who was President of the Rabbinical Association in England. The author called attention to the way that Adolf Hitler and Alfred Rosenberg were vilifying the Jewish people. (p. 3) >>more...
