Pharrajimos: The Fate of the Roma During the Holocaust;Judeocentric Holocaust Supremacism: The Same Arguments Used to Marginalize the Poles’ Genocide and the Gypsies' Genocide

Friday, July 28, 2017
This Hungarian-based work, now in the English language, provides interesting perspectives on the PHARRAJIMOS (PORAJMOS), the Nazi-German genocide of the Sinti and Roma peoples during WWII. Editors Barsony and Daroczi belong to one of the original organizers of the Romany civil rights movement in Hungary. One striking feature of this work, which I emphasize in this review, is the recycling of old arguments to justify the supremacy of the Shoah over all other genocides, this time against the Gypsies. I elaborate on this >>more...

Ida (English Subtitled)

Friday, July 28, 2017
This gloomy movie is more than the story of IDA—a prospective Catholic nun who learns that she is of Jewish background. It is also a vehicle for reinforcing pro-Jewish stereotypes about Poles. And I thought that Hollywood (and other western-based film-making outlets) are supposed to be careful about not perpetuating stereotypes. Evidently not—at least when the Polish UNTERMENSCHEN are involved. >>more...

Holocaust Cinema in the Twenty-First Century: Images, Memory, and the Ethics of Representation

Friday, July 28, 2017
This anthology can be of value insofar as it catalogues many Holocaust-related films. We also learn that the promotion of the Holocaust, notably in films, is now very much an international effort. For instance, in 2000-2004, nearly 40 percent of Holocaust movies were multinational endeavors. (Kobrynskyy and Bayer, p. 15). >>more...

Memory and Political Change;Revealing Statement on Jewish-German Reconciliation. Money Talks: Implications for the Holocaust Industry,

Friday, July 28, 2017
This book touches on many different aspects of victimhood. My review focuses exclusively on the Holocaust.

The author has much to say about German guilt after the Shoah. Perhaps without intending to, she draws attention to the stereotype of Jews being vindictive, as well as the reasoning behind the premise that Jews have been soft-peddling German guilt, and commonly shifting the blame for the Holocaust to Christianity and to Poles, because they had been paid off by the Germans. All this started with the Israeli-German Luxemburg Agreement of 1952. It has since become known as the Holocaust Industry, along with its ever-increasing set of “perpetrators” from whom to demand never-ending financial “restitution”. >>more...

Why Do the Heathen Rage?: Exposing the Deliberate Falsifications and Distortions of the Bible, Talmud and other Sacred Jewish Literature;A Talmud Apologetic With Considerable Speculation and Special Pleading,

Friday, July 28, 2017
This review is of WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE? EXPOSING THE DELIBERATE FALSIFICATION AND DISTORTIONS OF THE BIBLE, TALMUD AND OTHER SACRED JEWISH LITERATURE. The author was Samuel S. Cohon, a scholar at the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, Ohio. This work is largely a response to the then-current Nazi German attacks on the Jewish religion. >>more...

The Cheka: Lenin's Political Police;Some Jewish “Racial Solidarity” in Communism. Overabundance of Jewish Leadership in Communism Could Actually Have Been Greater

Wednesday, July 19, 2017
This scholarly work presents a variety of interesting information. I focus on a few pertinent topics.


Some commentators have described Dzierzhinsky as a Judaized Pole. How accurate is this?

Leggett describes how Dzerzhinsky grew up in Vilna [Wilno, Vilnius], which he describes as a cosmopolitan city with a strong Jewish element and a focal point of socialist ferment in Tsarist Russia. (p. 34). He adds that, “Dzerzhinsky came under the influence of Martov, future leader of the Menshevik Party, by whom he was introduced into Jewish circles, both proletarian and of the intelligentsia; he made many Jewish friends and zealously learned Yiddish. The Bund—Jewish social democratic workers’ organization in Lithuania, Poland, and Russia, founded in 1897—helped Dzerzhinsky in his political activity, for instance in late 1899. Dzerzhinsky’s close friend and schoolmate in Vilna was Mikhail Goldman…” (pp. 24-25). >>more...

From Tradition to Commentary: Torah and Its Interpretation in the Midrash Sifre to Deuteronomy (Judaica: Hermeneutics, Mysticism, and Religion;Talmudic Dual Morality Governing Jews and the GOYIM: “It Depends on Whose Ox is Gored”,

Friday, July 14, 2017
The double standard is systematic. It appears not only in the Talmud, but in other rabbinical literature. By way of introduction, author Steven D. Fraade, Mark Taper Professor of the History of Judaism at Yale University, writes, “There the context is the interpretation of the mishnaic rule (BABA QAMMA 4:3) that an Israelite is not culpable if his ox gores the ox of a gentile, whereas a gentile whose ox gores that of an Israelite must pay full damages regardless whether or not the gentile’s ox was a habitual gorer.” (p. 52). >>more...

The Other in Jewish Thought and History: Constructions of Jewish Culture and Identity (New Perspectives on Jewish Studies);Rabbinic Dual Morality Governing Jews and Gentiles: A Real Issue. Futility of Exculpations,

Friday, July 14, 2017
 Podwojna moralnosc -double morality  Of this anthology, I focus on the scholarly work of Steven D. Fraade. He squarely faces the double standard on Jews and gentiles, and does so without evasion or apologetics. He notes that, “There are surprisingly few critical treatments of the topic of Jewish attitudes to non-Jews in ancient times.” (p. 159). One commonly hears of the dual morality in the Talmud [PODWOJNA MORALNOSC], but the reader quickly learns, from this work, that it is true of other rabbinical literature as well. >>more...

Esau's Tears: Modern Anti-Semitism and the Rise of the Jews;Especially Valuable in Understanding Jews in Soviet Communism, Whose Significance Went Far Beyond Their Numbers,

Wednesday, July 12, 2017
This work is richly filled with facts. I focus on distinctive information. Other reviewers have already informed the reader about the overall content of this book, and I do not repeat them. >>more...
