Operation Shylock : A Confession (Vintage International)

Sunday, February 23, 2014
Jews Massively Moving Back to Poland--in the Jewish Imagination, February 4, 2014 This review is from: Operation Shylock : A Confession (Vintage International) (Paperback) Many reviews already describe the main features of this book, and my review tackles it from a different angle. By way of introduction, some Poles have been concerned with a potential erosion of Poland's sovereignty owing to growing Jewish influence over Poland, and some Poles have gone as far as suggesting that Jews could massively come back to live in Poland, and even create a latter-day Judeopolonia. >>more...

maginary Neighbors: Mediating Polish-Jewish Relations after the Holocaust

Sunday, February 23, 2014
Egregiously Judeocentric, With a Facts-Don't-Matter Mindset, February 14, 2014 This review is from: Imaginary Neighbors: Mediating Polish-Jewish Relations after the Holocaust (Paperback) This work is the same-old, same-old. It focuses exclusively on Jews as victims (notably at Jedwabne), Poles and Christians as villains, with Poles and Christians needing to constantly prostrate themselves for their villainy. Polish patriotism is demonized. The language is academese and Holocaustspeak, and the themes are predictable. The authors writing, or mentioned, are primarily leftists: Joanna B. Michlic, Ana Bikont, Brian Porter (now Brian Porter-Szucs), Janina Bauman, former U. B. (Bezpieka) member Zygmunt Bauman, and others like them. >>more...

Stranger at Home: The Holocaust, Zionism, and American Judaism (Studies in the History of Judaism)

Sunday, February 23, 2014
[Review based on 1981 edition.] Jacob Neusner notes that modes of thinking and behavior may have originated from non-Jews, but "became Jewish" by being adapted by Jews as their own. For instance, the Talmudic dialectic did not originate with Jews. It found derivation from Greek forms of rhetoric, as well as ancient Roman principles of legal codification. (p. 49).

Reconstructing Memory: The Holocaust in Polish Public Debates (Geschichte Erinnerung Politik)

Sunday, February 23, 2014
This is more of the same coming out of left-wing academic circles. It is almost entirely a rehash of things written many times before. I give it two stars because of its comprehensiveness and its relatively objective portrayal of the doubts about what actually happened at Jedwabne, as well as the implications of the Holocaust Industry. (See below).

: The transformation of Jewish society in Russia, 1825-1855

Sunday, December 29, 2013
The Russification of Jews: The Maskilim in the Light of the Policies of Tsar Nicholas Tsar Nicholas I and the Jews: The transformation of Jewish society in Russia, 1825-1855 (Hardcover) When Tsar Nicholas I reigned (1825-1855), Poland had already been Partitioned decades earlier, and the erstwhile Polish Jews of eastern Poland thus had become part of the western parts of the Russian Empire. This book is less about Tsar Nicholas I and more about how the maskilim (enlightened Jews), during the early stages of the Haskalah (enlightenment), reacted to his policies. Although there was no unanimous answer, among either Jews or gentiles, as to how Jews were to "modernize", certain trends are evident, and I now focus on some of them. >>more...

Beyond the Pale: The Jewish Encounter with Late Imperial Russia (Studies on the History of Society and Culture) JEWS EFFECTIVELY A SEPARATE NATION IN POLAND

Sunday, December 29, 2013
This book includes details about Jews that lived within the Pale of Jewish Settlement. However, it notably features the Jews of St. Petersburg, which was located outside the Pale. It elaborates on Jewish social, political, educational, and other movements. In my review, I focus on Polish-Jewish relations, even though this is not a theme of this work. >>more...
