Holocaust Forgotten or Revisited

A Surplus of Memory

Monday, February 20, 2017
" I don't think there's any need to analyze the Uprising in military terms. This was a war of less than a thousand people against a mighty army, and no one doubted how it was likely to turn out. This isn't a subject for study in a military school. Not the weapons, not the operations, not the tactics. If there's a school to study the human spirit, there it should be a major subject. The really important things were inherent in the force shown by Jewish youths, after years of degradation, to rise up against their destroyers and determine what death they would choose: Treblinka or Uprising. >>more...

The Construction of European Holocaust Memory: German and Polish Cinema after 1989Effectively--Though Subtly--Puts Poles and Nazi Germans on the Same Side

Sunday, January 15, 2017
Author Malgorzata Pakier introduces her book as follows, “In recent years, commemoration of the Holocaust has become a major political, cultural, and educational issue for the European Union…There is no other historical event to which European institutions have demonstrated any comparable deep commitment. It is manifest in such initiatives as the European Parliament’s ‘Resolution on Remembrance of the Holocaust, Antisemitism, and Racism’ approved on January 27, 2005, the sixtieth anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, and in the adoption of legislation criminalizing denial of the Holocaust at the level of the European Union under the German presidency in April 2007. The European Union has also played a key role in setting up the Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, launched on the occasion of the International Forum on the Holocaust, which took place in Stockholm in 2000.” (p. 9). >>more...

Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil;Jews--and Not Poles---Who Collaborated With the Nazis, Were Decisive in the Destruction of Europe's Jews by the Germans (Nazis)

Sunday, January 15, 2017
This classic provides a wealth of information, and upends many of the Holocaust myths that have accreted in the over-50 years since this work was written by the courageous Jewish author. Though relatively old, Jewish author Hannah Arendt's work goes a long way towards undoing the mystification of the Holocaust. >>more...

Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar by Montefiore, Simon Sebag (April 13, 2004The Crucial Jewish Complicity in the Decision to Murder Tens of Thousands of Polish Officers at Katyn,

Sunday, January 15, 2017
Why bring up this subject? Because Jews commonly say that Poles have to "Face up to the dark chapters in their history" and to "Come to terms with the past." What is good for the goose is good for the gander. >>more...

JEWISH HOLOCAUST SCHOLAR TAKES FLAK FOR HIS FAIRNESS TO POLES, AND TO THE FACTS

Shimon Redlich, a Holocaust survivor (p. 105), is Professor Emeritus of History, Ben Gurion University. He was previously Director of the Rabb Center for Holocaust Studies, also at Ben Gurion University. (p. 294). In this volume, he writes a bombshell chapter titled: “Some Remarks on the Holocaust by a Marginal Historian”. (pp. 105-109). >>more...

Hidden Gold: A True Story of the Holocaust ;Atypical Insights on the Daunting Challenges that Faced the Polish Rescuers of Jews

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
Many reviews already provide the reader with a synopsis of this book, and, instead of repeating them, I focus on generally-unmentioned issues. Author Ella Burakowski, born long after the war, is the daughter of Shoshana and her sister Esther, and the grandchild of Leib and Hanna Gold. The setting of this Holocaust-survival memoir is Pinczow, Kolkow, Dzialoszyce, and surrounding towns. >>more...

The Holocaust in History (The Tauber Institute Series for the Study of European Jewry);A Relatively Objective Portrayal of Holocaust-Related Events,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
One feature of this book is its Jewish author's obvious attempt to be impartial in controversies, and to present both sides. He also mentions the Nazi genocides of millions of non-Jews, including that of 3 million gentile Poles. (p. 24, 53). >>more...

The Fragility of Empathy after the Holocaust;HOLOCAUST FATIGUE

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The title of this book is misleading. It makes the reader suppose that this book is about how the moral capital of Jews, caused by gentile sympathy because of the Shoah, is slipping away. Instead, this book is not about that at all. Instead, it rehashes the standard fare of books of this type.

Surviving the Holocaust: The Kovno Ghetto Diary

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
It would be a mistake for the uninitiated reader to suppose that this diary is provincial--limited to events occurring in and near Kovno, Lithuania. Based on obviously-extensive Jewish and non-Jewish contacts, it also features much information on the unfolding fate of Jews in other places, notably in German-occupied Poland. More on this later. >>more...
