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...

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.

This book covers the vicissitudes of pre-WWII Polish-Jewish relations in the town of Jaslicka, SW Poland (post-WWII boundaries), from a few centuries ago until the Holocaust. To begin with, the term "Polish nobility" spanned the magnate and the poor noble-in-name-only, and constituted the largest franchised class in Europe: 8-12% vs. 1-2% of other European states. (p. 58). >>more...Tuesday, November 3, 2009
Judeocentric spin that Poles are WWII villains and Poland is ďż˝endemically inhospitable to Jews runs sharply counter to much of historical experience.ďż˝ Local and international Jewry opposed Polandďż˝s independence, and Jewish economic dominance and social alienation caused Polish anti-Semitism, exacerbating conflict when both nations sought independence. Anti-Polish Jews collaborated with Soviets and dominated Polandďż˝s Communist regime. This essay explores the spin and concludes with comparison to the Balkan case. >>more...Sunday, September 27, 2009

This work presents many topics, and I can only discuss a few. Elie Monk, the rabbi of Ansbacher, had believed that Judaism and Nazism could be compatible: "'I reject the teachings of Marxism from a Jewish standpoint and commit myself to National Socialism without its anti-Semitic components. Without anti-Semitism National Socialism would find in the tradition-bound Jews its most loyal followers.'" (p. 97). However, it is fallacious to consider Nazism as simply extreme conservatism. In fact, many German conservatives opposed Nazism. (p. 31, 57, 60). >>more...| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 |
