The Politics of TRauma and memory:“Confronting Injustice”? Same-Old Song: Everything Blamed on Poles and Catholics. Revealing: Anti-PiS Politics

Wednesday, November 29, 2017
The same small circle of authors is behind books of this nature. Thus, for example, author Janine Holc has especial thanks for Brian Porter-Szucs, whose views are at least borderline cultural Marxist [check out my reviews of his books, and especially his blog, as I did]. There also are uncritically-cited “winners” such as Robert Blobaum, Barbara Engelking, Konstanty Gebert, Bozena Szaynok, Feliks Tych, Joanna Tokarska-Bakir, and of course the biggest hero of them all--Jan T. Gross. >>more...

Jabotinsky's Children: Polish Jews and the Rise of Right-Wing Zionism;Disciples of Trumpeldor: The Betar and Its Complex Relationship With the Pre-WWII Polish Government

Wednesday, November 29, 2017
This book contains a wealth of information. I focus on a few salient matters.


One commonly-voiced exculpation for Jews in Communism states that Jews were just seeking a better world [Who doesn’t?], and that they had no idea that Communism relied on violence and totalitarianism. This is patently untrue. Heller candidly writes that, “Despite knowledge of the violence and repression that had accompanied the early years of Soviet rule, many socialist Zionists were mesmerized by the romance of the Communist revolution, with its promise to promote social justice, abolish unearned privilege, and fight antisemitism.” (p. 48). >>more...

The first tithe;“Acquisitiveness” of “Post-Jewish” Property By Jews Themselves. Jewish Spies for USSR. Jews Desert Anders’ Army en Masse

Wednesday, November 29, 2017
The translator points out that Eldad was born in 1910 in Eastern Galicia, and his family lived in Lvov (p. 9) [Lwow, Lviv]. The author was in the Betar. Disappointingly, he has little to say about the Betarim in Poland, and most of his book is about anti-British violence in the Yishuv. Other reviewers have focused on this, and I will not repeat them.

Some takeaways from this book (not listed according to chronology of events):


holocaust and the european societies;Goodbye, JUDENJAGD. The German-Terror Object Lesson at Podborze: The REAL Reason That Poles Started Killing Jews

Wednesday, November 29, 2017
My review is limited to the eye-opening chapter by Tomasz Frydel, titled “The PAZIFIZIERUNGSAKTION as a Catalyst of Anti-Jewish Violence. A Study of the Social Dynamics of Fear”. It is outstanding.


Frydel’s work is refreshingly objective. It stands out in stark contrast to the standard narrative, especially as propounded by neo-Stalinist authors such as Jan T. Gross, Jan Grabowski (especially his JUDENJAGD), and Barbara Engelking. According to the standard narrative, Poles, apart from a handful of enlightened individuals that rescued Jews, were a terribly primitive people steeped in Catholic-patriotic traditions, making them (what else?) anti-Semitic, and therefore prone to denounce and kill fugitive Jews. >>more...

German Reparations and the Jewish World: A History of the Claims Conference 1st Edition;2-nd editionHolocaust Industry: Lack of Transparency. Post-WWII Polish-Jews-Feared-Poles Myth. Poland Targeted. “Holocaust Survivors” a Bait

Wednesday, November 29, 2017
Author Ronald W. Zweig is a researcher, on the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany. He is at Tel Aviv University. The author buys-in into Holocaust supremacism and into the mystification of the Holocaust. That is, he repeats, as fact, the presumed uniqueness of the Holocaust (in terms of moral issues and human experience), and endorses its presumed divorce from its genuine historical setting of war and destruction. (p. 9). Just saying it, over and over, does not make it so! >>more...

German reparations to Israel byNicholas Balabkins by WEsst Germans;Germans Voted-In Hitler. German Equipment to Israel. Holocaust Industry “Compassion to Holocaust Survivors” Racket

Friday, November 17, 2017
Although this work was published in 1971, it remains relevant. This owes to what nowadays is called the Holocaust Industry. It also relates to current German attempts to whitewash themselves.

West German reparations to Israel byNicholas Balabkins;The Myth of Holocaust Supremacism Doing Something Good (“Opening the Door” To Non-Jewish Restitution Efforts)

Thursday, November 16, 2017
This book is excessively French- and Swiss-centered on the question of non-German reparations to victims of the Nazi era. Its value is that it provides some little-known information.

Jewish Bioethics byYechiel Michael Barilan;“Poles Rescued Too Few Jews” Hypocrisy. Medical-School Cadaver Affair in 1920s Poland—Driven By Stubborn Rabbis

Thursday, November 16, 2017
Yechiel Michael Barilan is professor of medical education at the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University. Nowadays, the once-militant Polish opposition to 1920s Jewish medical students freely dissecting the cadavers of Poles, but rarely the cadavers of Jews, is customarily blamed exclusively on (what else?) Polish anti-Semitism. The author provides valuable information that soundly debunks this blame-it-all-on-Poles standard narrative. He also includes other insights into rabbinical literature. >>more...

Letters on Polish Affairs (Classic Reprint) byCharles Sarolea;An Eye-Opening Non-Polish Perspective on Polish-Jewish Relations, Roman Dmowski, the Silesia-Plebiscite Farce, etc

Thursday, November 16, 2017
Charles Sarolea (1870-1953) was Professor at the University of Edinburgh, and the Belgian Consul in Edinburgh. This 1922 work is head and shoulders above the customary Anglo-American schlock about Poland written today. Because the information in this book is now almost a century old, I trace the continuity of its contents with modern events. >>more...

Poland, the knight among nations byLouis Edwin Van Norman;Kosciuszko. Polish Women Drive Patriotism. Prussian Rule Thwarted. WWI and WWII Predicted. Polish-Jewish Relations

Thursday, November 16, 2017
This 1908 book, written by an American who had lived in Partitioned Poland, is head and shoulders above the usual Anglo-American schlock written about Poland today. It is a mini-encyclopedia on Polish history, customs, achievements, and (yes) shortcomings. As an example of the latter, author Van Norman quips, “Unity is not a Polish virtue. Neither is subordination for the common weal. Everyone must lead.” (p. 25). >>more...
