5.0 out of 5 stars Jewish Exceptionalism in Historical and Broader Context: The Jewish Century

Friday, November 5, 2010
This thought-provoking work rejects the premise of classical anti-Semitism ("Jews control everything") while also rejecting the other extreme (Jews as an innocuous, powerless minority). For example, consider the rise of anti-Semitism in tsarist Russia: "One reason why Jews were victims of state persecution was that so many of them were becoming elite members." (p. 158). >>more...

Further, the CNN team was supplied with a list of witnesses and participants. Last but not least, the producers became familiar with the music from the Rising. In short, after immersing themselves in the material, they probably learned more about this historical event than the average Pole. >>more...
