An "Ordinary German", Bedzin, Auschwitz, Poles & Jews, Black Markets, Why Limited "P"

Friday, June 28, 2013
This work centers on the Jews of Bedzin. It touches on pre-WWII Polish-Jewish relations, the early years of Nazi German rule (this area had been annexed directly into the Third Reich), the Holocaust proper, and some postwar Jewish experiences.

Before WWII, the Bedzin Jews were generally better off than the Poles. (pp. 28-2). Anti-Semitic incidents tended to be sporadic, mostly verbal in nature, and largely limited to the 1930's. (pp. 39-45). However, the author provides a one-sided portrayal of Polish-Jewish relations. Jewish prejudices against Poles were just as strong as the reverse. See the free online book, TRADITIONAL JEWISH ATTITUDES TOWARDS POLES, by Mark Paul. (last updated in 2013). >>more...

The Holocaust of the Jews of Buczacz. Includes Mention of the OUN-UPA Genocide of the Poles

Sunday, May 26, 2013
Most Holocaust memoirs are not particularly well read--usually having a few to no Amazon reviews. This one, in contrast, has 165 Amazon reviews at the time of the posting of this review. For this reason, I de-emphasize the repeating of other reviewers in favor of the analysis of a few points. >>more...

Review of Narodowa Demokracja wobec problematyki zydowskiej w latach 1918-1929, by Olaf Bergmann.

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATS IN RELATION TO THE JEWISH PROBLEM IN THE
YEARS 1918-1929, is the title of this Polish-language book. It is really two books,
intertwined with each other. The first consists of extensive quotations from Endeks,
including ones from newspapers and other generally unavailable sources, and that from
famous and not-so-famous Endeks. This makes the book original and worthwhile, and I
therefore emphasized it in my review. The second consists of author Bergmann's
analysis, which is of variable quality. >>more...

A "Pre-Antisemitic" Endek View of Jews, and the Events Leading Up to the 1912 Duma Elections,

Sunday, February 10, 2013
GERMANY, RUSSIA, AND THE POLISH QUESTION is the title of this Polish-language book, originally published in 1908. It describes a time when Poland, as a sovereign state, was a distant memory, and the prospects of her resurrection as a nation seemed remote. Dmowski devotes much of his book to the relations between Russians, Prussians, and Austrians, and the politics between them. >>more...

O (nie)pomaganiu Żydom. Cena strachu – Marek Jan Chodakiewicz

Saturday, January 5, 2013
Lord Jim przestraszył się raz. Uciekł, nie pomógł innym. Przestraszył się, bowiem groziła mu pewna śmierć. Potem całe życie płacił za to własnym szalonym bohaterstwem. Dokonał wyboru, aby zawsze ryzykować wszystko dla innych i tym sposobem zmyć plamę na własnym sumieniu. To był sposób na odkupienie. Lord Jim to naturalnie postać literacka, ale Joseph Conrad wymyślił go sobie nie jako przeciętnego zjadacza chleba, lecz jako osobę wybitną. Mimo to jego bohater przestraszył się, gdy stanął w obliczu śmierci. Miał wybór i raz wybrał ucieczkę. Potem nadludzkim wysiłkiem woli zdyscyplinował się i ze świadomą pogardą śmierci wybrał postawę zupełnie przeciwną. >>more...

tranger in Our Midst: Images of the Jew in Polish Literature

Saturday, January 5, 2013
This book is not one that analyzes images of the Jew in Poland per se. Rather, it is an anthology of otherwise-disconnected separate articles about Poland's Jews. The articles are serialized according to time, beginning with Jews in Poland several centuries ago, and ending with post-Holocaust times. The articles include those by Polonized Jews such as Julian Tuwim and Antoni Slominski. >>more...
