Outreach (Contentious Issues: War of Cultures)


Friday, June 4, 2010
Prior to the opening of the Communist archives, Jan Tomasz Gross’s
Revolution from Abroad was practically the only solid study of the Soviet
occupation of Poland’s Eastern Borderlands between 1939 and 1941.
Equally valuable is his work on central Poland under Nazi occupation.1
His latest book, Sasiedzi: Historia zagłady ydowskiego miasteczka
(Neighbors: The Story of the Annihilation of a Jewish Town), is a case study
of Jedwabne in the county of Łoma, the Province of Podlasie. >>more...

A Surprising Resemblance to Jan T. Gross' FEAR, October 24, 2009 Is Jan Tomasz Gross' FEAR (2007) largely a clone of this 1947 Communist-like hatchet job on Poland? There is the one-sided portrayal of Poles rejoicing at Jewish deaths during the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising (p. 74). Kazimierz Wyka is quoted as saying that the absence of a Quisling under the German occupation had prevented anti-Semitism from becoming discredited among Poles (pp. 45-46). Accounts of Jews killed by Poles are elaborated, and always presented without verification and in a contextual vacuum. Poles are portrayed as unilaterally resisting postwar Jewish re-acquisitions of their properties. The so-called Kielce Pogrom is naively presented as the outcome of Poles acting on their belief in the blood libel. The church is blamed for its "slow" and ineffective response, and the Pogrom is magnified into a horrible blight upon all of Poland. >>more...
