The Plunder of Jewish Property During the Holocaust: Confronting European History;Non-Jews Slighted. Holocaust Industry Ad: Lumps Nazi Germany and Nazi-German-Conquered Nations Together as “Robbers” of Jews

jan peczkis|Friday, May 19, 2017

The very title of this book is Orwellian. It conflates ALL forms of acquisition, of post-Jewish property, regardless of circumstance, as “plunder”. Besides being totally Judeocentric and insensitive to the sufferings of non-Jews, it is wide off the mark.

 

Although this book is dated (2001), it does contain material of lasting interest. That is what I discuss in this review.

AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL POLITICS AS A BATTERING RAM FOR THE DEMANDS OF THE HOLOCAUST INDUSTRY

Avi Beker comments, “President Bill Clinton, who publically expressed his support for the activities of WJRO [World Jewish Restitution Organization], appointed Ambassador and later Under-Secretary of Commerce, Stuart Eizenstat, as a special emissary for property claims in Eastern and Western Europe. In August 1996, Ambassador Eizenstat testified before the Congress on his mission and contacts on behalf of the American administration to twenty different countries.” (p. 8).

Laurence Weinbaum adds that, “The question of restitution in Eastern Europe has found broad support in Washington…This action was followed by the dispatch of American ambassador to the European Union, Stuart Eizenstat, to the region. Ambassador Eizenstat met with many senior state and government officials and expressed US interest in a just and speedy resolution of the issue.” (p. 92).

DEEP POCKETS AND LARGE-SCALE AMBITIONS OF THE HOLOCAUST INDUSTRY AGAINST POLAND

Norman Finkelstein warned that any Polish financial concessions to the Holocaust Industry will only result in demands for more and more. That is exactly what has happened. Avi Beker writes, “In February 1997 the Polish parliament approved a bill on the restitution of property to religious communities. The law, however, is very limited and refers only to active religious communities (tiny remnants numbering some few thousand Jews) and does not deal with private and heirless property or the property of extinct communities.” (p. 9). In other words, according to Avi Beker, Poland should be for the taking for any interloper that comes to Poland and sticks out his hand to demand money.

SPECIAL TRIBAL RIGHTS FOR JEWS: THE ONETIME PROPERTY OF ONE JEW IS, OR MUST BECOME, THE PROPERTY OF “ALL” JEWS

(That is, to become the property of self-appointed takers from the Holocaust Industry). What Laurence Weinbaum writes, about Poland, in this regard, is almost priceless, “No provision whatsoever was ever made for the transfer of heirless and unclaimed property to appropriate Jewish successor organizations for the relief, rehabilitation and resettlement of survivors.” (p. 101). [As if Poland was supposed to.]

Then Laurence Weinbaum, in his discussion of the situation in Eastern Europe in general, laments, “The restitution of property was limited to that seized during the period of Communist rule (rather than during the German occupation or the rule by native fascists), and even then its restoration was confined to citizens of the country permanently domiciled there.” (p. 86). So here again is his Poland-is-up-for-grabs mentality.

Furthermore, Weinbaum more-or-less treats as an “excuse” the Polish consideration that German expellees could come back and reclaim their properties in Poland. (p. 87). What is he thinking--that Poland is just supposed to roll over and let herself get picked clean by German and Jewish interlopers with their deep pockets? Or are Jews supposed to be entitled to even more special rights, wherein Jewish outsiders would be entitled to line their pockets at Polish expense, while their German expellee counterparts would be left out of the plunder-Poland feast?

SWEDEN ON THE TAKE

“Neutral” Sweden profited from Nazi German actions. Sven Fredrik Hedin and Goran Elgemyr point out that, “Germany was Sweden’s most important trading partner both before and during the Second World War.” (p. 206).

In fact, Sweden was forced to hand back 13,000 kilograms of gold bullion to Belgium and Netherlands, but may owe much more. (p. 193). The authors add that, “A considerable number of Swedish business people were willing to help Germany liquidate the valuables it had stolen from the governments and citizens of occupied countries.” (p. 198).

FINALLY, A TINY BIT OF RECOGNITION OF THE NAZI GERMAN PLUNDER OF NON-JEWS

Hector Feliciano breaks ranks with the other authors, of this book, as he writes, “Besides physically exterminating millions of people and eradicating their long-established culture in large areas of Europe, Hitler’s policies for dealing with Germany’s enemies included the organized confiscation of the private art collections and libraries of Jews, Freemasons, Poles, and political opponents in the occupied countries.” (p. 165).

--------------

Let us put this entire book in proper perspective. In order clarify the line of attack conducted by the Holocaust Industry, I have made up the following story:

THE STORY OF MR. ROSENBAUM: A SATIRE OF THE HOLOCAUST INDUSTRY

Mr. Rosenbaum, an American Jew, lived in New York in the early 1940s, and was murdered by a Nazi agent. He left no heirs, and so his property reverted to the state, exactly as prescribed by law.

Now, 75 years after the fact, the Holocaust Industry is announcing to everybody that the United States is a Nation of Robbers because it appropriated Mr. Rosenbaum's property as its own. We are told, in accordance with the imagination of the likes of Jan T. Gross, that the USA is riven with long-repressed guilt for its ill-gotten gain. What’s more, even though few Americans collaborated with the Nazis, the USA is still “complicit in the Holocaust” because Americans benefitted from the death of the Jew Rosenbaum.

The only remedy is clear: The USA must "come to terms with the past", "face up to dark chapters in its history", and pay property restitution monies, to the self-appointed members of the Holocaust Industry, for Mr. Rosenbaum's long-stolen property.

Such is the situation facing Poland today. It would be a surreal joke were it not for real.
