A Broad Overview of Judaism. Includes Full Implications of the Hellenization of Jews,

Friday, May 1, 2015
My review is based on the sixth edition, published 1929. This work begins with basic issues surrounding the nature of God, faith, humanity, Israel's mission, etc. It then provides considerable detail on the Jewish feasts. Because so many issues are raised, I only touch on a few of them.

FROM THE CHMIELNICKI PERSECUTION OF THE JEWS IN POLAND

Thursday, April 16, 2015
The following scenario of the 17th-century Khmelnitsky (Chmielnicki) revolt is commonly presented in Ukrainian-Jewish dialogue: The Polish nobility and Jesuits oppressed the Cossacks. Jews were pawns of the nobility. The Jews merely transmitted the orders of the Polish overlords, and then became the innocent victims of Cossack anger over the Polish policies >>more...

Wednesday, April 15, 2015
JEWISH CIVILIZATION is the title of this Polish-language work (review based on original 1943 edition). There is such a wealth of information in this book, by a noted Endek author, that I can only touch on a few topics. >>more...

Jewish Civilization

Wednesday, February 25, 2015
JEWISH CIVILIZATION is the title of this Polish-language work (review based on original 1943 edition). There is such a wealth of information in this book, by a noted Endek author, that I can only touch on a few topics.

Jewish civilization is of the sacral type, as is Brahmin civilization. (e. g, p. 99, 101, 140, 266). Judaism places sacral law over ethics. (p. 23, pp. 152-154). The main difference between the Brahmin and the Jew is Jewish messianism and the concept of the Chosen People. (p. 140). [To see Koneczny's taxonomy of civilizations, please click on, and read the detailed Peczkis review, of On the Plurality of Civilisations]. The reader should note that Koneczny uses his taxonomy in a typological as well as literal sense. As an example of the former, Bismarck was an example of Byzantine civilization, which had largely replaced Latin civilization in pre-Hitler Germany. (p.362 >>more...

„Polski ruch ludowy wobec Żydów (1895-1939)”

Thursday, October 17, 2013
Nakładem Muzeum Historii Polskiego Ruchu Ludowego i IPN ukazała się doskonała praca Sławomira Mańko „Polski ruch ludowy wobec Żydów (1895-1939)”. Praca ta ukazuje zbieżność poglądów prawicowych ludowców z poglądami narodowców co do roli Żydów w II RP. Jednym z krytyków działań społeczności żydowskiej był jak się okazuje również Wincenty Witos >>more...

The Holocaust of the Jews of Buczacz. Includes Mention of the OUN-UPA Genocide of the Poles

Sunday, May 26, 2013
Most Holocaust memoirs are not particularly well read--usually having a few to no Amazon reviews. This one, in contrast, has 165 Amazon reviews at the time of the posting of this review. For this reason, I de-emphasize the repeating of other reviewers in favor of the analysis of a few points. >>more...

History of the Jews in Russia and Poland: From the Earliest Times Until the Present Day

Monday, May 21, 2012
The vast majority of "Russian" Jews were Polish Jews living in tsarist Russian-occupied Polish territories. (Review based on original edition). Owing to the fact that these three volumes were originally written just before Poland's acquisition of independence (1918), they were not influenced by this event. >>more...

The Ruthenian (Ukrainan)Question In Galicia

Friday, October 28, 2011
This short book (review based on original 1919 edition) is packed with information. The data is from Austrian sources. These indicate that 59% of the population of Eastern Galicia was Ruthenian (Ukrainian), and that Polish majorities existed not only in Lwow and other cities, but also in many large enclaves north of the Dniester (Dnister) River, especially in the Tarnopol (Ternopil) area. (pp. 3-5). >>more...
