The Unwritten Diary of Israel Unger (Life Writing)

Monday, December 9, 2013
Insights into Paid Polish Rescuers of Jews, the Later Secrecy of Jew-Hiding, the Dark Side of Oskar Schindler, Israel (nicknamed Srulik) Unger was a young child during the Holocaust. He and part of his family survived the Nazis when some Poles hid them behind a false wall in an attic of a flour mill in Tarnow. It is unclear how many Poles knew about the Jews in hiding, yet not one of them denounced the Jews to the Germans. Gammon and Unger at first estimate about ten Poles in the know p. 15), but then suspect that the existence of the fugitive Jews in hiding was an open secret among the Poles. (p. 199). >>more...

Militant Messiah: Or, the Flight from the Ghetto: The Story of Jacob Frank the Frankist Movement

Saturday, November 30, 2013
This work provides a fine introduction not only to Jacob Frank and the Frankists, but also to events surrounding the man and his movement. It also describes other developments within Judaism. For instance, Mandel comments, (quote) In Hassidism the concepts of good and evil undergo a certain qualification. They no longer are determined by the deed itself, but depend on the doer. The same deed that would be evil committed by an ordinary man, committed by the tsaddik is good. (unquote). (p. 19). However, the Frankist movement went to the extreme of full-blown antinomianism. (p. 36, 37). >>more...

he Mixed Multitude: Jacob Frank and the Frankist Movement, 1755-1816 (Jewish Culture and Contexts

Saturday, November 30, 2013
This work goes deep into theology, and focuses on the interface of Christianity and Judaism in the 18th century. Owing to the breadth of the topics presented, I focus only on a few issues, notably those I consider to be of broader significance. >>more...

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

Saturday, November 30, 2013
THE BLOODY GHOSTS 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...

Henry Morgenthau's Report on the 1918 Polish Pogroms against Jews

Saturday, October 26, 2013
This review is limited to Jewish-American Morgenthau's 1919 mission to Poland (pp. 348-384) and his report on the same (pp. 407-437). As a backdrop, Poland had, at that time, been at war for 5 years. There was widespread destitution, disease, hunger, and even starvation (p. 418). Morgenthau cautions: "The mission has purposely avoided the use of the term `pogrom', as the word is applied to everything from petty outrages to premeditated and carefully organized massacres. No fixed definition is generally understood." (p. 409). Pilsudski (p. 371) restricted the term to government-sponsored violence against Jews (as in czarist Russia). (In my reviews, I use the term pogrom as a concession to modern usage) >>more...

The JUDENJAGT in Action? Not Reliable and Not Objective. Better Works Available

Thursday, October 17, 2013
The reader learns of some Poles denouncing Jews for the German reward of a bag of sugar, of grabbing anything that belonged to Jews, of even respectable Poles denouncing Jews, and of members of the Polish Blue Police (POLICJA GRANATOWA) drinking to assuage their acts against Jews, etc. Did you know that Jews acted in astonishingly the same ways (towards other Jews, and that even before the actual Holocaust)? Please click on In Those Terrible Days: Writings from the Lodz Ghetto and read the detailed Peczkis review. Clearly, this overall repulsive conduct was severe wartime demoralization, and not some mythical Poles' "failure of the test of humanity" (p. 5) >>more...

Through a Woman's Eyes: Life in Poland Under the German Occupation

Wednesday, October 9, 2013
A Detailed and Especially Poignant Account of Polish Suffering Under the Nazis,  Nowadays, the Nazi genocide of Poles is all but forgotten in favor of the Nazi genocide of the Jews (Shoah). The deadly everyday situation facing Poles, if mentioned at all, is reduced to a cursory footnote. Poles are relegated to spectators, or worse, relative to Jews. This book serves as a revelation to people who think this way. Even the reader quite familiar with this subject can be shocked by the German cruelties against Poles. >>more...

Wspomnienia Dawne i NoweAn Eyewitness Polish Railroad Stationmaster to the Threshold of the Treblinka German Death Camp,

Wednesday, October 9, 2013
RECOLLECTIONS OLD AND NEW is the title of this Polish-language book. Considering all the non-English Holocaust-related books that have been translated into English, it is a wonder that this one has not been thus translated in its entirety. I focus primarily on matters that have not been raised in translated excerpts from this book. >>more...
