Jews and Poles Oppressed by the Tsar. Insights into Jewish Business Advantages. Jews Have Expelled Other Jews,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
This work follows a lachrymose approach to the Jews of 19th-century tsarist Russia, but is also cognizant of the sufferings of the Poles. (My review is based on the 1970 reprint of the original 1892 edition). >>more...

Polish Tribes in Now-Ukraine Centuries Before Casimir the Great?

Wednesday, May 11, 2016
My review is based on the 1982 edition. This work is less about nations and early nationalism, and more about history in general. The author contrasts the emergence and function of nations in both Islam and Christendom, tabulating the essential features (pp. 288-289). The author comes across as rather abstract--even obtuse--in his thinking much of the time. For this reason, his reasoning is sometimes difficult to follow. >>more...

15-Year-Old Outdated Content. Very One-Sided Book. Crucial Information Omitted :Jedwabne massacre

Saturday, October 17, 2015
Readers, save your time. Contrary to media hype, this book is of little value. It is a translation of materials written way back in 2000-2001—with a few slightly more recent, all of which had been published in the 2004 Polish-language book, MY Z JEDWABNEGO. The authors have repackaged decades-old text, and essentially presented it to the unsuspecting English-speaking reader as something new and dramatic. >>more...

Hasidic Movement in Old Poland. Broad-Based Implications:Hassidim MAskilim

Wednesday, August 19, 2015
his is a very detailed work which contains much technical detail. The title, MEN OF SILK (Kitajcy), stems from the fact that Hasidim commonly wore silk in order to avoid wearing wool—in which there was the danger of some linen threads being mixed in with the wool threads.

Massacre in Jedwabne

Friday, May 1, 2015
The author's father lived in Jedwabne. (p. 149). This book assembles a great deal of information about this subject. Owing to the fact that much has been already written about it, I focus on new and little-known information instead of repeating previously-discussed well-known information. >>more...

A Jewish View of Jewish Elitism, Jewish Cosmopolitanism, Jewish Particularism, etc.,

Friday, May 1, 2015
Maurice Samuel (1895-1972) was a Jewish writer and Zionist. He identified himself as a freethinker. (p. 74, 76). He gives some frank insights into Jewish thinking, and I focus on a few of the topics he raises. My review is based on the original 1924 edition >>more...

Antisemitism and Its Opponents in Modern Poland

Monday, February 9, 2015
Let me begin by saving the serious reader some time. The reader who is interested in a balanced Jewish viewpoint of Polish-Jewish relations, and Polish anti-Semitism, should click on Ludwik Hirszfeld: The Story of One Life (Rochester Studies in Medical History), and read the detailed Peczkis review.

The usual suspects are behind this present work: Feliks Tych, Alina Cala, Wlodzimierz Rozenbaum, etc. (p. x). The Polonophobia of all three is well known. Feliks Tych was the son-in-law of the Jewish super-Communist Jakub Berman, who had been one of the top three murderous henchmen of Stalin in the Soviet-imposed Communist puppet government that had shackled Poland. >>more...

Jewish Elitism, Jewish Cosmopolitanism, Jewish Particularism

Wednesday, January 7, 2015

A number of Christians, who had passed near synagogues in the past, had reported that Jewish worship was loud and chaotic. Were these opinions based solely on prejudice, or did they have some basis in fact? >>more...

The Populist Radical Right in Poland: The Patriots (Extremism and Democracy) (Hardcover)

Sunday, December 21, 2014
Buyer beware. When you read an author who harps on the radical Right, but ignores the radical Left, one should suspect an agenda. Sure enough, such is the case. Pankowski has been caught making the Hitler salute himself, and has known ties to radical leftist organizations. (See first Comment). >>more...
