A Narrow Bridge to Life: Jewish Slave Labor and Survival in the Gross-Rosen Camp System, 1940-1945

Sunday, August 28, 2011
The Nazis started to use foreigners for forced labor in 1939 (p. 69), but especially from 1940. Goebbels stated that "Roma [Gypsies], Jews, and Poles will receive identical treatment" in this regard. (p. 13).

The concentration camp at Gross Rosen (now Rogoznica), like Auschwitz, was not originally built for Jews. (p. 78). As was the case with Auschwitz, Poles comprised most of its original WWII inmates. (p. 69). Later, Poles comprised 60-65% of inmates in 1942 and 45% of inmates in 1944. (p. 77). (My father, Kazimierz Peczkis, as well as my onetime dentist since I was a child, Charles Brachmanski, had been inmates of Gross Rosen.). After the fall of the Soviet-betrayed Warsaw Uprising, Poles again became a large majority of the inmates at Gross Rosen. According to Gutterman, the Poles, by their obvious spirit of defiance against the Nazis, raised the morale of the Jewish inmates. (p. 94) >>more...

Vom Generalplan Ost Zum Generalsiedlungsplan: Dokumente (Einzelveraffentlichungen der Historischen Kommission Zu Berl)

Sunday, August 28, 2011
My review is based on the article: GENERALPLAN OST, published by historian Czeslaw Madajczyk in the 1962 issue of POLISH-WESTERN AFFAIRS, Volume 3, Number 2, pp. 390-442. The entire GENERALPLAN OST is reproduced in German (pp. 401-442). The remainder of the article is an English-language analysis, by Madajczyk, of GENERALPLAN OST >>more...

Run East: FLIGHT FROM THE HOLOCAUST

Sunday, August 28, 2011
The author lived in Radzyn, Poland. Soon after his birth in 1918, his family went through pogroms, which he describes as follows: "The violence was unpredictable. Sometimes, it would move across an entire region like a storm rumbling across an open plain. Other times, it was local, contained within a city or town. Sparked by a single incident, an unkind word, a bad business transaction, a simple rumor, the violence would flare for days." (p. 5). [The American reader can see close parallels with past episodes of U.S. racial violence. It could be local or nationwide. Nearly always, it was some perceived "us vs. them" incident, such as a black harming a white, or a white harming a black, that triggered it.] >>more...

THE NEW POLAND

Sunday, August 28, 2011
This short book was clearly written by a Communist or Communist sympathizer. Standard Communist rhetoric is used (e. g., those in opposition to the New Order in Poland are reactionaries, fascists, wealthy landowners, etc.), the prewar Polish government is bad-mouthed as one consisting of dictators, and General Wladyslaw Anders is viciously slandered. The author presents a rosy view of the new government, and writes favorably of his interviews with the likes of Bierut and Minc. Of course, this work was written before the sham elections of January 1947, which ended the "provisional government" and officially brought the Communists to power. >>more...

Polish Guerrilla Action in Great Detail. Clarifies Polish Acquisitions of Post-Jewish Property,

Sunday, August 28, 2011
Ironic to the fact that the author was eager to join the 1939 Polish Army, and became a brave guerrilla fighter, his last name means "crybaby" in Polish. It also means "anointed forest" in old Polish. (p. 5). This book is one of the most detailed English-language books on Polish guerrilla warfare that I have read, and I have read quite a few of them. (See the Peczkis Listmania: GUERRILLA WARFARE...). >>more...

No Greater Ally: The Untold Story of Poland's Forces in World War II (Perfect Paperback)

Monday, July 25, 2011
This is one of the most comprehensive works on this subject. It includes not only detailed descriptions of relatively well-known events (September 1939, the Battle of Britain, Monte Cassino, and Warsaw Uprising) but also lesser-known ones such as Poles fighting a large-scale guerrilla war at home (1939-1945), fighting as fliers in the anti-German Allied air war (1940-1945), and fighting as regular soldiers in 1940 western Europe, in 1942-1943 Africa, in post-1941 Soviet Union, in 1943-1945 Italy, and in 1944-1945 post-D-Day western Europe >>more...

Judeo-Christianity (Jews-Christians mutual ideological infulence)-myth or reality?

Sunday, July 24, 2011
A popular ideology of "political correctness” has its source in the neoliberal approach to the history and critical thinking. This approach undermines and dilutes the spiritual heritage of Europe, and deliberately misleads to different and tortuous approaches of the reality around us.
 Political correctness as a curiosum is valid not only in the media, but what is worse; it is practiced in a pseudo scientific research. In many ways infiltrates awareness, turns plain false into true, distort the image of the world, which is consistent with the facts based on sound scientific research >>more...

The Last Jew from Wegrow: The Memoirs of a Survivor of the Step-by-Step Genocide in Poland

Sunday, July 10, 2011
Shraga Bielawski grew up in Wegrow, which is located well north of Warsaw. At Wegrow, 75% of the businesses were owned by Jews before WWII. (p. 3). Interestingly, for all the bad rap Jews got for usury, Bielawski's father did not charge interest on his loans, and was well liked by Poles. (p. 5). The family was very wealthy. During the Great Depression, Bielawski converted most of his assets into gold, worth a then-considerable $4,000. (p. 14). >>more...

Am Alive :The horrifying eye witness account of Auschwitz &

Sunday, July 10, 2011
My review is based on the original (1961) edition. Kitty Hart was a Polish Jew who had lived in Bielsko (Bielitz) in then SW Poland. During the 1939 German-Soviet conquest of Poland, she observed German fifth column activity. Germans shot at Poles from rooftops, rioted in the streets, etc. (p. 14). In common with countless eyewitnesses, Hart reported Luftwaffe planes strafing columns of defenseless refugees. (p. 15). >>more...
