holocause icones;Iconized Images of the Jewish Holocaust and The Implied Marginalization of All Other Genocides

Thursday, March 15, 2018
The icons discussed in this book include the the railway cars, the shoes of the Jewish victims, the ARBEIT MACHT FREI sign, the 6 million figure, and the Diary of Anne Frank. Author Oren Baruch Stier tells the reader about the significance of these items, “Holocaust icons are powerful, indispensable tools with which people comprehend the Shoah. We use these tools to make sense of the Holocaust and negotiate our relationships to that past in the present. Even more, our understandings depend on the distillation of historical events and memorial representations into easily apprehensible symbols that often operate on noncognitive level—that speak or indicate ‘Holocaust’ to us at first blush, on a visceral level.” (p. 183).

POlacy ZYdzi

Thursday, March 15, 2018
Szokujące wrażenie robi obraz historii stosunków polsko-żydowskich od pierwszej połowy XIX wieku do pierwszej wojny światowej. Jeszcze w latach 50-tych XIX wieku stosunki te układały się na ogół zupełnie dobrze, bez większych zakłóceń. Następne pół wieku wystarczyło jednak do ich dramatycznego pogorszenia, i to głównie z powodu skrajnych szowinistycznych działań Żydów, zwłaszcza w efekcie napływu masy Żydów rosyjskich, tzw. litwaków, którzy nie związani dotąd z Polską stali się zajadłymi rusyfikatoram >>more...

The Holocaust, the Poles, and World War II Memory

Tuesday, February 13, 2018
A hurricane of recrimination has erupted between Poland and Israel. It all started because the Poles are sick and tired of hearing the scurrilous slander of “Polish concentration camps.” That’s Holocaust revisionism plain and simple. The camps were German and Nazi. However, a bumbling Polish attempt to fix the problem via regulation blew up in Warsaw’s face. >>more...

Legal Objections to Bills S.447 and H.R.1226

Saturday, February 3, 2018
1. Bills S.447 and H.R.1226 Violate International Treaty and law The Justice for Uncompensated Survivors Today Act of 2017, S. 447, passed the Senate on December 12, 2017. A related House Bill H.R.1226 was introduced in the US House of Representatives on February 27, 2017. Both S. 447 and H.R. 1226 (the “Bills”) are now before the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives. The texts of the two Bills are similar and in parts identical. The Bills call on “countries of particular concern” relative to the Holocaust Era assets and related issues to: 1) return to the rightful owner any property, including religious or communal property, that was wrongfully seized or transferred; 2) provide property or compensation for heirless property in order to assist needy Holocaust survivors, to support Holocaust education, and for other purposes. >>more...

Hasidim anew hisory;Hasidism Confronts Jewish Atheism. “Christianization” of the Holocaust? (Redemptive Suffering in Judaism). Joy AND Ascetism

Sunday, January 21, 2018
This magisterial work is a single-volume encyclopedia on Hasidism. It traces the history of Hasidic Judaism, and highlights the unexpected post-Holocaust rebirth of Hasidism in places such as Brooklyn, New York, and the State of Israel. Owing to the comprehensiveness of this work, my review is limited to certain issues surrounding mostly-recent Jewish-Polish and Jewish-Christian relations. The issues discussed are topical, not chronological. >>more...

The following is a direct quote from DuBois (from page 471 of this anthology): >>more...

The mask he jews wear..Who is the American Jew? Deconstructing Atheism. Has Insights into the Persistence of Jewish Economic Monopolies Centuries Ago

Tuesday, January 16, 2018
By way of introduction, Borowitz’ grandfather came from Sokolow, in Russian-occupied Poland. (p. 33).

The author traces the self-identity of American Jews. He believes that the we’re-all-Americans assimilationist fever, of late-19th and early-20th-century Jews coming to the USA, has increasingly given way to a more openly-Jewish and particularistic Jewish self-identity, beginning in the late 1960s. >>more...
