Rome & Jerusalem- Jewish identities

Wednesday, January 7, 2015
This book [review based on 1943 reprint] provides a variety of interesting information. For instance, author Moses Hess accepted the Talmud as referring to Jesus Christ, in Sanhedrin, 67a, and Sabbath, 104b. (pp. 204-205). While consistently scorning those Jews who thought of Judaism as only a religion, he also noted that Orthodox Jews can be just as modern as assimilated Jews. (p. 106). >>more...

Jewish Radicals and Radical Jews

Wednesday, January 7, 2015
The title of this book is a little off. The book is as much about the New Left and related movements as it is about Jews in it.

This work also provides information about the history of earlier leftist movements. For instance, Cohen comments, (quote) The BUNDISTS were Radical Jews in the Russia and Poland of the early twentieth century, who, while not supporting a Jewish nationalist movement, proposed a separate Jewish workers' movement committed to socialism within the society in which Jews lived and worked. (unquote). (p. 78). Obviously, Jewish involvement in Communism, here under the euphemism of socialism, and sometimes called the Zydokomuna, was much broader than membership in the Communist Party itself. >>more...

Jewish Elitism, Jewish Cosmopolitanism, Jewish Particularism

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

A number of Christians, who had passed near synagogues in the past, had reported that Jewish worship was loud and chaotic. Were these opinions based solely on prejudice, or did they have some basis in fact? >>more...

Jew-Vs-Jew Inadvertently Illuminates Many Aspects of Past Polish-Jewish Relations,Real Jews: Secular Versus Ultra- Orthodox: The Struggle For Jewish Identity In Israel

Tuesday, December 30, 2014
There are many reviews of this item already posted. These other reviews inform the reader on the essential content of this work, and I will not repeat them. I take a totally different approach. Although this is not a book on Polish-Jewish relations, I write this review from that vantage point. >>more...

THE SPIRIT OF THE YOUNG: THE POLISH NATIONAL RADICAL CAMP IN THE YEARS 1934-1944. FROM STUDENT REVOLTS TO CONSPIRACY FOR POLISH INDEPENDENCEONR: NOT POLISH FASCISM

Monday, December 29, 2014
The oenerowcy did evaluate their political philosophies in juxtaposition with various fascist movements in Europe at the time. However, the ONR did so not in order to emulate them, but rather to compare them with its own, especially in the light of Poland's realities. (p. 19). >>more...

More Than Independence: Polish Political Thought 1918-1939

Monday, December 29, 2014
This anthology features many authors and political movements. Owing to its breadth, I focus on a few items.

THE PEASANTRY AND THE PEOPLE'S MOVEMENT

Jan Jachymek introduces this movement to the reader, (quote) The people's movement was a current of thought of genuinely Polish origin, representing the interests of the numerically strongest social class, the peasantry, from whom the whole Polish nation arose. The first people's movement advocate was, in the general view, Tadeusz Kosciuszko, who epitomized the ideas of fight for the state's independence and the proper position of the peasants in it. (unquote). (p. 211). >>more...

The Populist Radical Right in Poland: The Patriots (Extremism and Democracy) (Hardcover)

Sunday, December 21, 2014
Buyer beware. When you read an author who harps on the radical Right, but ignores the radical Left, one should suspect an agenda. Sure enough, such is the case. Pankowski has been caught making the Hitler salute himself, and has known ties to radical leftist organizations. (See first Comment). >>more...

Beyond Violence: Jewish Survivors in Poland and Slovakia, 1944-48 Property Restitution: Clarifies Many Misconceptions About Postwar Jewish Returnees and Property,

Wednesday, December 10, 2014
This book features seldom-available information. On the other hand, author Anna Cichopek-Gajraj drifts into many of the standard Judeocentric constructs, and gives too much credence to Jan T. Gross, though, to her credit, not in a completely uncritical manner. My review is limited to issues surrounding Poland. >>more...

Poland's Threatening Other: The Image of the Jew from 1880 to the Present (Paperback)

Monday, December 8, 2014
To correct the countless errors and omissions of this book would require a book in itself. (For more details, see the first Comment). I can only touch on a few matters in this single review.

The author's Judeocentric bias goes to ludicrous extremes. Joanna Beata Michlic specifically and openly rejects explanations of anti-Semitism in terms of objective contextual factors. (e. g, p. 12). To Michlic, Jews are simply objects of perceptions, and never flesh-and-blood humans who interact with their environment. All she has is a simplistic dialectic, where Poles are the bad guys and Jews are never more than victims. Michlic's trash-the-Poles mindset would have the reader believe that Poles only have the right to say flattering things about Jews, while Jews can say whatever they want about Poles. How dare those rascally Poles disagree with Jewish attitudes and actions! By what audacity do the Poles stand up for their own nation? >>more...

O TYM JAK NSZ i ONR ŻYDOM POMAGALI…

Saturday, December 6, 2014
Ten tytuł to nie pomyłka. Wiadomo, że polska prawica „nie przepadała” za Żydami, że często członkowie prawicowych ugrupowań Żydów prześladowali, a nawet zabijali. Tyle, że mimo ideologicznej wrogości, wielu żołnierzy NSZ-u i działaczy ONR-u również Żydom… pomagało. Oto garść przykładów. >>more...
