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...

Jewish culture renesance in Wiemar Germany;A Revived Separatism Among German Jews in the Decades Before Hitler. Jewish Groups Use HEIL Greeting

Saturday, October 7, 2017
This book contains a wealth of interesting information. For example, the Talmud (Makkot 10a) states that one learned much Torah from one’s teachers, but more from one’s colleagues, and the most from one’s students. (p. 69). >>more...

Reduta Dobrego Imienia Polski pozywa izraelski Haaretz za sformułowanie polskie „haniebne dziedzictwo zdrady

Monday, August 7, 2017
Sformułowanie to pojawiło się w izraelskim dzienniku Haaretz w artykule Chloe Rose, w którym można przeczytać, że „w Polsce jednak kryje się najciemniejszy zakamarek europejskiej duszy, haniebne dziedzictwo zdrady. To właśnie tutaj unicestwiono największą na świecie społeczność Żydów – jeden nieżydowski Polak na każdych dziesięciu polskich Żydów”. >>more...

The Cheka: Lenin's Political Police;Some Jewish “Racial Solidarity” in Communism. Overabundance of Jewish Leadership in Communism Could Actually Have Been Greater

Wednesday, July 19, 2017
This scholarly work presents a variety of interesting information. I focus on a few pertinent topics.


Some commentators have described Dzierzhinsky as a Judaized Pole. How accurate is this?

Leggett describes how Dzerzhinsky grew up in Vilna [Wilno, Vilnius], which he describes as a cosmopolitan city with a strong Jewish element and a focal point of socialist ferment in Tsarist Russia. (p. 34). He adds that, “Dzerzhinsky came under the influence of Martov, future leader of the Menshevik Party, by whom he was introduced into Jewish circles, both proletarian and of the intelligentsia; he made many Jewish friends and zealously learned Yiddish. The Bund—Jewish social democratic workers’ organization in Lithuania, Poland, and Russia, founded in 1897—helped Dzerzhinsky in his political activity, for instance in late 1899. Dzerzhinsky’s close friend and schoolmate in Vilna was Mikhail Goldman…” (pp. 24-25). >>more...

Jewish Poland Revisited: Heritage Tourism in Unquiet Places (New Anthropologies of Europe;Features Candor on the Depth and the Pathology of Modern Jewish Polonophobia

Saturday, June 10, 2017
This book can be useful for those readers interested in a compendium of Polish-Jewish interactions in modern Poland. Most of it, however, is standard fare (as elaborated in the latter part of my review). The most distinctive part of the book is as follows:

Poles Rarely Collaborated with Germans

Friday, April 28, 2017
​In recent years especially, there has been an ongoing smear campaign against Poland--accusing her of being "complicit in the Holocaust". I have prepared this "bulletin" (below and attached), with embedded links, that can be posted: >>more...

Ben Gurion Looks Back in Talks with Moshe Pearlman;Ben Gurion Pro-Russian and Polish-Averse. Later, a British-Proposed Judeopolonia (East Prussia)

Friday, April 28, 2017
There are many subjects raised in this book, and I focus on two distinctive ones. (My review is based on the original 1965 edition).

By way of introduction, David Ben Gurion (David Gruen) grew up in Plonsk, in tsarist-Russian ruled Congress Poland. Zionism, for him, was not an escape from persecution or perceived perpetual gentile unfairness to Jews: It was an affirmative end in itself. In fact, Ben Gurion indicated that he experienced no anti-Semitism. Click on [and read my detailed review] of Memoirs: David Ben-Gurion. >>more...
