The secret army by Bor-Komorowski

Friday, April 28, 2017
Tadeusz Bor-Komorowski was, after the capture of Grot Rowecki by the Germans, the head of the entire AK guerilla movement. Bor includes a detailed account of underground life and an impressive list of Polish sabotage actions against the German occupant (pp. 152-154). The AK was careful to calculate maximum benefit from its actions for the cost in German terror reprisals, but the Communist AL had no such scruples (p. 171) >>more...

This book addresses the German rule over Poland--but only from September 1939 through the end of June 1941, which is just when Operation Barbarossa had begun. There were 3 more years of brutal Nazi German occupation, followed by decades of Soviet rule over Poland. >>more...

THE DARK HEART OF HITLER'S EUROPE: NAZI RULE IN POLANDUNDER THE GENERAL GOVERNMENT;sThe Nazi German Mass Murders of Jews AND Poles. Has an Odd Disclaimer. Nuanced Polish-Jewish Relations

Friday, April 28, 2017
Having partitioned Poland, both the former Soviet Union and Germany set about imposing their administration on the territory under their control. In the German occupation zone, the western provinces (Silesia, Pomorze, Poznan, most of Lodz and part of Warsaw, Cracow, and Kieke Provinces) were annexed to the Reich by a decree of 8 October 1939 and were known as the Wartheland. They accounted for an estimated 35,000 square miles with an estimated 9.5 million of Poland's pre-war population. In the remaining area which fell under German control, the Nazis established a "General Government" which was intended as a labor colony of the Reich. It incorporated an estimated 37,000 square miles of territory-including the cities of Warsaw, Cracow, Radom, and Lublin-and 12 million inhabitants. The seat of power was established at Cracow with Hans Frank, a Nazi lawyer being appointed governor. The Nazi occupation marked the beginning of almost six years of unspeakable horror for the Polish people.

Within days of the German invasion of the former Soviet Union in June, 1941, all Poland as constituted in September, 1939, came under German control for the first time. In a new administrative division, the southeastern regions were transformed into Distrikt Galizien with its administrative headquarters at Lwow, which was incorporated into the General Government. To the east, the remaining territories became Reichskommissariats of the Ukraine and Ostland-the latter incorporating also the Baltic nations. Poland was now divided between the Reich (30.8%), the General Government (38.8%), and the Eastern Reichskommissariats >>more...

CHARACTERIZING YAROSLAVSKY [MINEI GUBELMAN], THE HEAD OF THE LEAGUE OF MILITANT GODLESS

Many works on Soviet atheism portray Emelian Yaroslavsky as essentially a moderate who promoted educational atheism of the masses, and who avoided the extremes of mere passive atheization and violent atheization. However, the boundary between “respectable” and “guttural” militant atheism was not clear-cut even in the case of Yaroslavsky. For instance, Yaroslavsky, in his speeches, associated religion with drunkenness. (p. 195) >>more...

TWO SIDES TO THE STORY OF POLISH ANTI-SEMITISM

Much has been written about prewar Polish boycotts of Jewish merchants, but very little about the other side of the coin. Jewish merchants had banded together to maintain their age-old economic hegemony, engaging in what is now called Jewish ethnic solidarity. Piotr Kosobudzki, a glazier by profession, noted how the Jewish glaziers at Lodz and Dobra had united to (unsuccessfully) drive the newcomer Polish glaziers out of business. (pp. 20-21). Where Jews saw anti-Semitism and discrimination, Poles saw emancipation from Jewish economic dominance: "...the Endeks encouraged Poles to wrest commerce out of the hands of the Jews. More and more Poles began opening shops, and more and more Poles began earning bread and favorable living conditions." (p. 22). >>more...

: A World Problem, Jews, Poland, Humanity: A Psychological And Historical Study, Part 1;A Politically-Incorrect WWI-Era Classic on Poland's Jews

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
My review is based on the English-language, two-volumes-in-one 1917-1920 edition.

Nowadays, books on Polish-Jewish relations adhere to the Manichean view of the Jewish victim and the intolerant Pole. [This has been a trope in Jewish writing for at least a century, as is obvious from p. 67]. The present book perhaps goes too far in the opposite direction. If so, the student of Polish-Jewish relations can use this book to counterbalance the other, modern extreme, and come up with a middle, Judeorealistic view of Jewish-Polish relations. >>more...

Nazi Germany explained; Insights Into the Neo-Pagan Aspects of Nazism

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The author provides an early-1930s British perspective on the Nazi movement in Germany. Owing to the fact that this work long precedes WWII and the Holocaust, it is not colored by these events. >>more...
