ROMAN DMOWSKI: PERSONAGE, POLE, AND FRIEND is the title of this Polish-language book. It was published by Chicago-area members of the SN (STRONNICTWO NARODOWE), including Antoni Wawro. [I knew his son, in my childhood, from Saturday-morning Polish School and from the ZUCHY (Polish Scouts)]. Apart from the main text, the book includes an assortment of short articles, some reprinted from other sources, about Dmowski. It also features considerable detail about Dmowski's declining health, death, and funeral. Several eulogies are published. >>more...

A Survey of Jewish History in Poland. Understanding Judeopolonia, etc., This review is from: Zydzi w dziejach Polski (Polish Edition) JEWS IN THE DEALINGS OF POLAND is the title of this Polish language book. It starts with the beginnings of the Jewish religion (JEPD hypothesis) and ends with the Solidarity Movement. This book cites a large number of obscure sources. This means that the author brings to light a good deal of information that would otherwise be generally unknown, but also means that it is difficult to check most of his sources. Although Wysocki is often critical of Jews, he is even-handed in blaming both Polish and Jewish nationalists for the negative aspects of pre-WWII Polish-Jewish relations. (p. 116). >>more...

On the Edge of Destruction: Jews of Poland Between the Two World Wars (Paperback)

Monday, September 5, 2011
Celia Heller combines a great deal of detail on Jewish life in prewar Poland with an over-reliance on selectively negative anecdotes, from individual Jews, archived in the YIVO Institute, and her complete avoidance of anecdotes from the Polish side. How about, for instance, some testimonies of Poles who had been driven out of business, and reduced to penury, by unfair Jewish competition? >>more...

A Young Holocaust Survivor from Mielec, Poland. Part of Her Family Denounced by Jews

Monday, June 20, 2011
Irene Eber first describes the idyllic life of herself and her family before the war. She focuses on the Jewish traditions and observances.

She then talks about how the Germans entered her native Mielec in 1939, and burned the butcher shop, synagogue, and associated libraries with the men herded inside. She smelled the odor of burning wood and burning human flesh. In very early 1942, the Mielec Jewish community was among the first to be shipped to the newly constructed death camps---in this case nearby Belzec. Other local Jews were sent to their deaths in Auschwitz >>more...

The Muslims in Poland: Their origin, history, and cultural life

Saturday, May 21, 2011
This was originally an article in the October 1942 issue of the JOURNAL OF THE ROYAL ASIATIC SOCIETY. It features Poland's indigenous Muslims, who were the descendants of Tatars that had settled in Poland several centuries ago. "Whereas all other Muslim peoples established themselves in Europe as conquerors (omitting the majority of Muslims in Yugoslavia, who are of Serb origin and were converted to Islam by their Turkish conquerors), the Polish Tatars inhabit a region never touched by a Muslim invader..." (p. 163). "So it came about that a Muslim tribe enjoying almost all civil rights could flourish in Poland at an epoch characterized by bitter struggles between Christianity and Islam." (p. 172). >>more...

A Blend of Reasoned Thinking and Crass Polonophobia: Mutual Polish-Jewish Prejudices,

Saturday, May 21, 2011
Unlike many Jewish authors, Scharf does not awfulize the experience of interwar Polish Jews. He was subject to the NUMERUS CLAUSUS while at the University of Krakow. Echoing the statements of the Endeks, Scharf realizes that, without it, "Jewish medics might have greatly outnumbered their non-Jewish colleagues". Also, in his words, the NUMERUS CLAUSUS "does not appear so monstrous" when one remembers that sons and daughters of physicians could be admitted to the university outside the quota. (p. 27). >>more...

Thursday, April 22, 2010
Title: THE UPA IN THE BIESZCZADY MOUNTAINS. This scholarly book traces the course of the Ukrainian fascist-separatist OUN-UPA (or UIA) genocide of Poles, focusing primarily on the geographic region located in the extreme SE of Poland as defined by her post-WWII borders. Zurek repeatedly refutes the claims of politically-correct history-distorters and moral relativists such as the Pole Grzegorz Motyka and the Ukrainian Eugeniusz Misilo >>more...
