Some of My Best Friends Are Jews byRobert Gessner;Anti-Semitism in 1930’s Europe and America. Objectionable German-Jewish Behaviors Identified by French Jews

Friday, May 4, 2018
The author, Robert Gessner, identifies himself as an American Jew. (p. 3). His travels took him to Europe (including Nazi Germany soon after Hitler came to power). His accounts exhibit a pronounced lachrymose mindset, and he consistently uses the “Jews are scapegoats” trope. There is one important exception to this tendency, as elaborated next: >>more...

Probing the Ethics of Holocaust Culture byClaudio Fogu; OLD-FASHIONED FORMS OF HOLOCAUST SUPREMACISM

Friday, May 4, 2018
Classically, the elevation of the Holocaust over the genocides of all other people has been justified (rationalized) through the argument that all Jews were targeted for extermination, and never before in history has a state tried to exterminate an entire group using all the resources at its disposal. (Fogu et al. p. 13). >>more...

Holocaust Restitution: Perspectives on the Litigation and Its Legacy byMichael J. Bazyler;Holocaust Industry in Action: Media Promotion, International Politics, Intimidation, and Fundamental Inequality of Victim-Claims

Friday, May 4, 2018
This book highlights the cases involving Swiss Bank and German companies. It includes a testimony by Judge Edward R. Korman. However, the most interesting information is of an indirect nature, and that is the focus of my review.

Imperfect Justice: Looted Assets, Slave Labor, and the Unfinished Business of World War II byStuart Eizenstat;Germans, Swiss, and French. Now the Holocaust Industry Targets Nazi-German-Victim Poland. Lack of Transparency--Then and Now

Friday, May 4, 2018
NO HOLOCAUST INDUSTRY, HUH? THE AUTHOR CONFUSES THE ISSUE

Although author Stuart E. Eizenstat does not mention Norman Finkelstein by name, he would have us believe that there is no such thing as the Holocaust Industry because, according to him, very little of the Holocaust reparations monies went to the lawyers. He asserts that many lawyers worked pro bono in the Swiss bank case in which he was actively involved, while other lawyers got only about 1% of the settlements. He compares this with victorious mass-injury cases, in which the attorney gets 15%-30% (or more) of the settlement. [p. 345]. >>more...

German INtelectuals and the nazi past;Strong Judeocentric Bias. Includes the Suppression of Discussion of Communist Crimes

Friday, May 4, 2018
The Nazi German extermination of 5-6 million Jews is fact. Its self-evident special status is not. That is what I emphasize in my review.

ONLY THE JEWS ARE SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED

The title of this book is a bit misleading. It is less about a “Nazi past” as it is a one-sided German intellectuals’ rumination over past German crimes against Jews—as if the Holocaust was the ONLY crime that Germans ever committed. In fact, this work is scrupulously sanitized of any mention of the genocidal German crimes against Poles. Check the index: “Poles” and “Poland” do not appear even once! >>more...

Post-Communist Restitution and the Rule of Law by Csongor Kuti;Holocaust Industry Implications. Poles Indemnify Other Poles for Non-Polish Crimes. Why??

Friday, May 4, 2018
This book wades into a lot of legalese detail, and it is not always easy to figure out what the author is driving at. However, there are a number of salient themes, which I discuss: >>more...

Jewish Poland Revisited: Heritage Tourism in Unquiet Places (New Anthropologies of Europe) Paperback – July 19, 2013 by Erica T. Lehrer;Features Candor on the Depth and the Pathology of Modern Jewish Polonophobia

Friday, May 4, 2018
This book can be useful for those readers interested in a compendium of Polish-Jewish interactions in modern Poland. Most of it, however, is standard fare (as elaborated in the latter part of my review). The most distinctive part of the book is as follows:

Microhistories of the holocaust;Direct, Very-Specific German Terror is What Induced Poles to Denounce or Kill Fugitive Jews

Friday, May 4, 2018
My review is limited to Tomasz Frydel and his chapter: “The ‘Hunt for the Jews’ as a Social Process, 1942-1945”. Frydel’s work is refreshingly objective as it goes deeply into the controversial—and sometimes emotional—topic of Polish-Jewish relations under the Nazi-German occupation during WWII. Frydel builds upon the earlier works of historian Marek Jan Chodakiewicz (e. g., BETWEEN NAZIS AND SOVIETS). >>more...

the hel of treblinka;Early (1944) Report on Treblinka. Inadvertently reveals the Present-Day Politicization of the Holocaust

Friday, May 4, 2018
Author Vasily Grossman was a Soviet Jew, and this book is one of the first, if not the first, account of Treblinka. His refreshingly-candid treatment provides a lasting testimony not only to the horrors of Treblinka, but perhaps—even more so—a diagnosis on how Holocaust memory had since been manipulated. >>more...
