THE BLOODY APPARITIONS;Move Over, JUDENJAGD. A Superb, Detailed, and Objective WWII History of Dabrowa Tarnowska County

Wednesday, June 14, 2017
THE BLOODY APPARITIONS is the title of this Polish-language book. The geographic setting of this work is the same as that of neo-Stalinist Jan Grabowski's anti-Polish book, JUDENJAGD (THE HUNT FOR THE JEWS), which distorts events in a contextual vacuum. Adam Kazimierz Musial's work, which preceded JUDENJAGD, is incomparably better. It tells the full story of what happened in Dabrowa County, to Jews AND Poles, under the German occupation. Unlike JUDENJAGD, Musial's work includes information derived from the archives of the A. K. (ARMIA KRAJOWA). (p. 10, 27 >>more...

Ordinary Jews: Choice and Survival during the Holocaust;Jewish-Nazi Collaboration Analyzed. Earlier Jewish-Soviet Collaboration at Bialystok: Exculpation Falls Apart,

Wednesday, June 14, 2017
Other reviews of this book already inform the reader about its overall content, and I do not repeat them. Instead, I focus on specific themes. My review content is topical, and not according to the actual chronology of events.


From Oswiecim to Auschwitz: Poland Revisited; an Example of Jewish-German Collaboration, Against Poland, in the 1939 War,

Saturday, June 10, 2017
Other reviewers already inform the reader about the content of this book, including its emphasis on Hasidism in Poland. Instead of repeating them, I focus on a distinctive item of information.

Much has been written about some Poles who, during the Nazi German occupation, had served the Germans at the expense of the Jews. However, it is also a little-known fact that some Jews had earlier curried favor with the German invaders of Poland in 1939. This book provides one such example. >>more...

Such a Beautiful Sunny Day... - Jews Seeking Refuge in the Polish Countryside, 1942-1945;Much About Nothing (Normal Wartime Behavior). Self-Refuting. Same Oft-Quoted Voodoo Numbers

Saturday, June 10, 2017
Baias.. Baias....In every war, some members of the population act in a dishonorable manner. This is nothing new. It is also very easy for those who have never been through a war to moralize about the conduct of those who did.

For technical details on this book, please click on, and read my detailed English-language review of the Polish edition, Jest taki piekny sloneczny dzien. This new English-language version is no better. It repeats the same selectively-chosen archived anecdotes, and then jumps into fantastic made-up numbers. >>more...

Talmud iAntysemityzm” ludzi łagodnych i dobrych", realnosć gorszego i lepszego sortu Polaków: żydowskie i niezależne podejście do postrzegania rzeczywistości: łagodni, i dobrzy ludzie mówią:"uczciwy człowiek, chociaz Żyd"?

Saturday, June 10, 2017
Największą tragedią Żydów jest nie to, że ich antysemita nienawidzi, ale to, że łagodni i dobrzy ludzie mówią: „porządny człowiek, chociaż Żyd".Takim cytatem  zapozyczonym od Ludwika Hirszfelda rozpoczął Tadeusz Mazowiecki swój artykuł: „Antysemityzm ludzi łagodnych i dobrych” w 1960-tym roku.  Próbuje  tam analizowac zjawisko anytysemityzmu w kategoriach  społecznych,  godnosci osoby ludzkiej, jednoczesnie  nie zapominając posrednio o zródłach antysemityzmu  tkwiących w zydowskich zachowaniach wynikających z nauczania talmudycznego. Oprocz powyzszego artykułu, autor przeanalizował wypowiedz naukową Ks. Waldemara Szczerbinskiego,a dla uzupełnienia zapoznał sie z wypowiedziami  Alana Hart – żydowskiego polityka, naukowca jak też dziennikarza.Nie była mu obca obfita lieratura na omawiany temat. >>more...

Israeli Teenagers' Holocaust-Related Visits to Poland

Saturday, June 10, 2017
"Over the past two decades, the Shoah has come to play an increasingly significant role in Israeli collective memory and civil religion". (p. 1). This book provides valuable information about the Israeli visits to Poland, covering nearly every aspect of their occurrence in encyclopedic detail. The Israeli voyages to Poland have grown from 400 visitors in 1988 to over 28,000 in 2005. (p. 249) >>more...

Jewish Poland Revisited: Heritage Tourism in Unquiet Places (New Anthropologies of Europe;Features Candor on the Depth and the Pathology of Modern Jewish Polonophobia

Saturday, June 10, 2017
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:


Auschwitz, Poland, and the Politics of Commemoration, 1945-1979 (Polish and Polish American Studies;Refutes the “Hide Jewish Deaths” Polonophobic Myth. The Rest is the Standard Judeocentric Fare,

Saturday, June 3, 2017
Much of this book simply repeats the usual memes found in countless other books on Poles and Jews. For instance, there is the mystification of the Holocaust conducted by Jan Blonski and Michael Steinlauf. There is mention, yet again, of Poles thinking themselves the “Jesus Christ of Nations”, as if this was some kind of disease from which Poles must be cured so that they will finally do the right thing and fall down in obeisance to Jewish ways of thinking. >>more...

Post-Communist Restitution and the Rule of Law

Saturday, June 3, 2017
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:


Although he does not put it in these words, author Csongor Kuti seems to be ambivalent on this question. He writes,
