The Polish Jew, his social and economic value

Sunday, July 15, 2012
A Fascinating 1906 Analysis of Polish-Jewish Relations in Late-Tsarist Russian Ruled Poland, July 10, 2012 This review is from: The Polish Jew, his social and economic value (Paperback) The British author's understanding of Jews is quite different from that of westerners, and she points out that her conclusions are supported by eight years' residence in Russian-ruled central Poland. (Preface). She asks, (quote) Can he [the westerner] imagine the capital of Poland, the most civilized city in Russia, the link between Europe and Asia, where every third man is a Jew, where the trade and commerce are in the hands of the Jews and where Jewish organizations have openly declared their intention of converting the Imperial army to the tenets of Socialism and of gaining the greatest amount of political influence...? (unquote). >>more...

Zbrodnie bezpieki i sądownictwa

Monday, June 25, 2012
Negowanie przez Grossa znaczenia roli Żydów w UB jest sprzeczne z podstawowymi faktami ustalanymi przez historyków. Cytowałem już w poprzednim szkicu uwagi o - łagodnie mówiąc - "nadreprezentacji Żydów w UB", sformułowane przez historyka prof. Andrzeja Paczkowskiego. Gross, skądinąd chętnie cytujący akurat prof. Paczkowskiego, całkowicie pominął jego ocenę na temat "nadreprezentacji Żydów". Jednoznacznie pisze o "nadreprezentatywności Żydów w UB" inny czołowy historyk IPN-owski dr hab. Jan Żaryn w swym najnowszym opracowaniu książce "Wokół pogromu kieleckiego" (Warszawa 2006, s. 86). O bardzo niefortunnych dysproporcjach, wynikających z nadmiernej liczebności Żydów w UB, pisali również niejednokrotnie dużo rzetelniejsi od Grossa autorzy żydowscy, np. Michael Chęciński, były funkcjonariusz informacji wojskowej LWP, w wydanej w 1982 r. w Nowym Jorku książce "Poland. Communism, Nationalism, Anti-semitism" (s. 63-64). Żydowski autor wydanej w Paryżu w 1984 r. książki "Les Juifs en Pologne et Solidarność" ("Żydzi w Polsce i Solidarność") Michel Wiewiórka pisał na s. 122: "Ministerstwo spraw wewnętrznych, zwłaszcza za wyjątkiem samego ministra, było kierowane w różnych departamentach przez Żydów, podczas gdy doradcy sowieccy zapewniali kontrolę jego działalności". >>more...

Anti-Jewish Violence: Rethinking the Pogrom in East European History

Monday, June 25, 2012
The authors support the view that the early pogroms in tsarist Russia (such as those of 1881-1882) were not, as earlier believed, incited by the government. (p. 4, 7, 138). Pogroms during tsarist rule varied in severity by region. They were rare in Belorussia, Lithuania, southern Ukraine, and Crimea. Later pogroms, as during the Russian revolution were, however, organized (in this instance, by both Reds and Whites) >>more...

The Auschwitz Volunteer: Beyond Bravery

Monday, June 25, 2012
Instead of repeating information presented by other reviewers, I mainly focus mainly on matters not mentioned by them, especially insofar as they shed little-known insights on the function of Nazi Germans in general and the Auschwitz Concentration/Death Camp in particular. WARNING: The descriptions of German cruelties are graphic, and may upset the sensitive reader. >>more...

On Modern Jewish Politics (Studies in Jewish History (Oxford Paperback))

Monday, June 25, 2012
This review is from: On Modern Jewish Politics (Studies in Jewish History (Oxford Paperback)) (Paperback) The Litvaks (Litwaks, LITVAKES in Yiddish) were long the objects of not only Endek but also Jewish preoccupation: "...in the Jewish world of Eastern Europe these Litvaks were celebrated--or damned--for their well-known tendencies toward modernization, secularization, radicalism, and the logical extension of all this, namely, modern nationalism." (p. 42). >>more...

The Russian Jew Under Tsars And Soviets

Monday, June 25, 2012
A Gloomy Portrayal of Jews in Tsarist Russia and the USSR; Jewish Boycott Irony, etc., This review is from: The Russian Jew Under Tsars And Soviets (Paperback) In contrast with some of his other books, Baron takes a rather lachrymose-history viewpoint in this one. (If accurate, it adds to the refutation of the argument that the pro-Russian, and later pro-Communist, orientation of Polish Jews owed to a pro-Jewish Russian mindset.) Owing to its breadth, I can only touch on a few topics. >>more...

“Jews in Poland and Russia” Book Review

Tuesday, May 29, 2012
Professor of Jewish history at Brandeis University, Anthony Polonsky is the author of a monumental three volume work entitled “Jews in Poland and Russia”. It is reviewed by Timothy Snyder in The Wall Street Journal of May 19-20, 2012. In Snyder’s review there is the following sentence: “The Polish-Lithuanian State weakened in the 18th century, as a result of the pervasion of the parliament by the wealthy aristocrats and by the incursions of the neighboring Russian, Habsburg and Prussian empires. This left Jewish communities facing two transitions at the same time into foreign rule and into modernity.” >>more...

How Jews Killed Jews In Order To Create The State Of Israel

Sunday, May 27, 2012
Now, when professor of Jewish history at Brandeis University, Anthony Polonsky published a monumental three volume work entitled “Jews in Poland and Russia,” and in Israel opinions are divided about the wisdom of proposed nuclear bombing of Iran one should also remember the book of Naeim Giladi and his description how Jews killed Jews in order to create the state of Israel. Naeim Giladi, is the author of the book: “Ben-Gurion’s Scandals: How The Haganah and Mossad Eliminated Jews” (Dandelion Books, LLC, Tempe Arizona, 2nd expanded edition 2003). >>more...

History of the Jews in Russia and Poland: From the Earliest Times Until the Present Day

Monday, May 21, 2012
The vast majority of "Russian" Jews were Polish Jews living in tsarist Russian-occupied Polish territories. (Review based on original edition). Owing to the fact that these three volumes were originally written just before Poland's acquisition of independence (1918), they were not influenced by this event. >>more...
