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...

Observing America's Jews (Brandeis Series in American Jewish History, Culture, and Life)

Sunday, April 20, 2014
Author Marshall Sklare was a Jewish American sociologist who had studied America's Jews. [Review based on 1993 edition]. He was eminently qualified to speak on this subject. A number of coauthors had joined him. Most of the themes of this book are familiar: Jewish self-identity, Jewish mobility, intermarriage with non-Jews, Jewish support for Israel, Jewish philanthropy, Jewish conversions and resistance to them, etc. There is relatively little on the role of the Shoah in the self-identity of American Jews. >>more...

Gone To Pitchipoi: A Boy's Desperate Fight For Survival In Wartime (Jews of Poland)

Saturday, April 5, 2014
By way of introduction, the title "Gone to Pitchipoi", is based on a Yiddish phrase that means, "Gone to utopia or hell". (p. 85). This work elaborates on the author's childhood life before and during WWII. The Katz family had lived in Ostrowiec, Poland. >>more...

Ashes And Fire: The Story Of Poland's Jewry Under And After German Occupation

Saturday, April 5, 2014
This work (review based on original 1947) edition is helpful in understanding how the Jewish survivors of the German-made Holocaust emerged from hiding, described their wartime experiences, and were attempting to rebuild their lives. It also gives insights into Soviet-ruled Poland, and the impending imposition of the Communist puppet state. >>more...

The Portable Hannah Arendt (Penguin Classics)

Sunday, December 29, 2013
Hannah Arendt covers many topics in this volume [Review based on 2000 Edition]. This includes various political philosophies and philosophers, the history of German Jews, the unfolding Holocaust, the similarities between Soviet Communism and German Nazism, and much more. She believes that government-forced racial desegregation in the USA violates the freedom of association. She compares it to forcing Jews in Jewish-only vacation resorts to associate with non-Jews. (p. 238) >>more...

The JUDENJAGT in Action? Not Reliable and Not Objective. Better Works Available

Thursday, October 17, 2013
The reader learns of some Poles denouncing Jews for the German reward of a bag of sugar, of grabbing anything that belonged to Jews, of even respectable Poles denouncing Jews, and of members of the Polish Blue Police (POLICJA GRANATOWA) drinking to assuage their acts against Jews, etc. Did you know that Jews acted in astonishingly the same ways (towards other Jews, and that even before the actual Holocaust)? Please click on In Those Terrible Days: Writings from the Lodz Ghetto and read the detailed Peczkis review. Clearly, this overall repulsive conduct was severe wartime demoralization, and not some mythical Poles' "failure of the test of humanity" (p. 5) >>more...
