The Katyn Wood murders / by Joseph Mackiewicz ; with a foreword by Arthur Bliss Lane

Saturday, March 20, 2010
This work is one of the first, if not the first, English-language book on this subject. In the Foreward, Arthur Bliss Lane, the former U.S. Ambassador to early-postwar Poland, commented: "The Katyn Massacre of over four thousand [We now know of about 25,000 total] Polish Army officers was one of the most horrible crimes of World War II, equaling the barbarity of Hitler's wholesale extermination of members of the Jewish race in the gas chambers of Oswiecim [Auschwitz] and Majdanek." (p. v). Lane's statement is ironic in view of the modern tendency to elevate the Holocaust over that of non-Jewish victims of the Nazis, and the continuing policy of devaluing Communist crimes in favor of Nazi ones.

Polonophobia in WWII Hollywood and Its Legacy

Saturday, March 13, 2010
The author has examined numerous WWII-era Hollywood films, evaluated them for their content on Poland (usually absent, seldom neutral or positive, and frequently negative), compared them with portrayals of other Allied nationalities, and diagnosed the reasons for these developments. It all boiled down to how Poles were seen, who had an interest in belittling Poland, and what little capability the Poles had for getting the truth out. >>more...

American and British Investigations of the Pogroms in Poland, 1918-1920, March 11, 2010

Saturday, March 13, 2010
I focus on Samuel and Wright. [1920 pagination]. Want more? See the the Peczkis reviews of All in a life-time, and Poland and the Minority Races (Eastern Europe Collection Series).

Western press accounts spoke of thousands of Jews killed in Polish pogroms. (The Situation, p. 57). (90% of these turned out to be unfounded: ibid, p. 56). Vicious Polonophobic screeds were circulated. (reprint, p. 49). The actual death toll, a few hundred, was equated with the Turkish massacres of hundreds of thousands of Armenians. (Letter, p. 53). Kempczynski criticized what might be called Jewish-suffering-is-special thinking, citing the ongoing hostilities between many different peoples against each other: "Yet none of these nations has raised the cry: `pogrom.' Bloodshed, licentiousness, robbery is a natural outcome of war." (p. 54). >>more...

Change of heart

Wednesday, March 3, 2010
Recently Professor Krzysztof Jasiewicz had a change of heart in contrast to what he wrote in 2001 in a book entitled “First after the devil,” (“Pierwsi po diable”). It is a symbolic change of heart of a Polish historians. The book “First after the devil” mentioned as supposedly typical Polish exaggerations in the reports of massive Jewish collaboration in the imposition of Soviet rule in postwar Poland >>more...

Lenin’s mummy and the fraud of the October Revolution

Wednesday, March 3, 2010
The tragedy of Russian history is that the bloodless revolution in March 8-12, 1917 which caused on March 15, 1917 the abdication of that Tsar Nicholas II (1868-17 July 1918) and ended the rule of the Romanovs  Dynasty produced weakened Russia and gave opportunity to Berlin to use paid agents to stage political takeover of the government in St. Petersburg and secure the surrender of Russia as well as short-lasting submission of Russia to the status of a vassal of the German Empire. >>more...

Polska - nacjonalizm wyobrażony

Wednesday, March 3, 2010
W swej książce z tezą zawartąw tytule "Gdy nacjonalizm zaczął nienawidzieć" Brian Porter – historyk z Uniwersytetu Michigan zajmujący sięszczególnie XIX-wieczną  historią Polski  -  twierdzi, że polski nacjonalizm zaczął nienawidzieć dopiero wtedy, gdy część radykalnej inteligencji warszawskiej przestała wierzyć w możliwość osiągnięcia utopii postępu w świetlanej przyszłości.[1]Według niego myśliciele ci zastąpili wiarę w “postęp” wiarą w wydumaną “rzeczywistość”: ponadczasowy “naród” zmagający się od zawsze i na zawsze na przestrzeni dziejów z otaczającymi go wrogami. Z powodu rzekomego śmiertelnego zagrożenia ze strony “obcych” intelektualiści ci zdefiniowali “naród” w sposób raczej wąski. Wykluczyli z niego wszystkich, których nie dało się poddać autorytarnej dyscyplinie przywództwa powstającego pod koniec XIX wieku ruchu narodowo-demokratycznego. Nacjonalizm powstał aby “samonamaszczona elita” mogła kontrolować “nowo-zmobilizowane ‘masy’.”[2 >>more...

In the Shadow of Katyn: Stalin's Terror

Monday, March 1, 2010
This work, originally published in Polish (1976), and made available in Poland (1990), was eventually translated into Russian and now English. Swianiewicz, a long-lived (1899-1997) Pole of Scottish descent, and dabbler in freemasonry (p. 199), was a Polish POW at Kozielsk, yet he was one of the 3% not murdered at Katyn (p. 66), possibly because he was of use as a Sovietologist. (p. xv; see also p. 122). >>more...

Jews and Communism: A Middle View. Should Jews Apologize?,

Monday, March 1, 2010
This work avoids each extreme: 1) Anti-Semitic fantasy, and 2) A manifestation of the Jewish attempt to rule the world. Space limitations limit my discussion.

In the USSR (where Jews constituted 1-2% of the population): "Nonetheless, it was during the years 1918-1920 that the full implications of the association of Jews with the revolution, and specifically with the Communist revolution, first became apparent. With a striking number of Jewish-born individuals in the Bolshevik leadership--Trotsky, Kamenev, Zinoviev, Sverdlov, and Uritsky to name just the most conspicuous--it was inevitable that the new regime should find itself branded as being dominated by Jews." (Diner and Frankel, p. 5). >>more...

A Secret Press In Nazi Europe, The Story Of A Jewish United Partisan O

Saturday, February 20, 2010
This work is centered on Jewish guerrilla life in the area of Vilna (Wilno, Vilnius), and discussion of the press is decidedly subordinate. The Warsaw Ghetto fighters are honored, and described as consisting of 200 ZOB (Z.O.B) and (the oft-ignored) 400 ZZW (Z.Z.W)(p. 209). A helpful table is provided of the Jewish soldiers found in all the Allied armies. (p. 334). Poles and Lithuanians who aided the local fugitive Jews are also featured in some detail. ((pp. 157-166). >>more...

The Fall of a Sparrow: The Life and Times of Abba Kovner (Stanford Studies in Jewish History and C)

Saturday, February 20, 2010
This book covers Kovner's life in pre-WWII Vilna (Wilno, Vilnius), the Soviet and German occupations, the German-Nazi shootings of Jews at Ponary and the later destruction of the Vilna Ghetto, Kovner's partisan organization and its affiliations and actions, the postwar gatherings of Holocaust survivors, and the decades of Kovner's postwar life in Israel. Interestingly, Kovner was part of an immediate-postwar revenge plot which, if successful, would have led to the deaths of millions of Germans. (pp. 234-236 >>more...
