Fascism and Communism (European Horizons;Ernst Nolte Is a Non-Judeocompliant Scholar, But is NOT Trying to Lessen the Crimes of Nazism

Sunday, January 15, 2017
By way of introduction, German historian Ernst Nolte has gotten a lot of flak, from the Judeocentric academics, for pointing out that Nazism had been a competitive imitation of Soviet Communism. They do not like it when the genocides of non-Jews are featured, especially in juxtaposition with the Shoah, because this threatens the supremacy of the Holocaust over the genocides of all other peoples. >>more...

Life in Transit: Jews in Postwar Lodz, 1945-1950 (Studies in Russian and Slavic Literatures, Cultures, and HistoryZionists, and Not Polish Anti-Semitism, Drove Most Holocaust-Surviving Jews From Post-WWII Poland,

Sunday, January 15, 2017
The author elaborates on his experiences in Lodz in the years immediately after WWII. He also recounts some of the testimonies of his colleagues, and provides invaluable clues to Jewish political life in postwar Poland. I focus on some pertinent issues.


Kuba Goldberg, born in Lodz, had been an on-and-off acquaintance of author Redlich over many years. Redlich comments, (quote) Kuba studied at the Ignacy Skorupski high school, where almost half of all students were Jewish. “There was no anti-Semitism in our school. There were friendly relations among Polish and Jewish students. These friendships, however, stopped at the school entrance. They never invited each other to their homes.” (unquote). (p. 103). >>more...

Israeli Society, the Holocaust and its Survivors jews and comunists

Wednesday, November 23, 2016
This work begins with basic information on the Holocaust. The reader learns that, although the Nazi decision to exterminate the Jews was not made before spring 1941 (p. 14), Chaim Weizmann had quoted the (possibly talismanic) figure of 6 million Jewish victims, as early as 1939. (p. 13). [The 6 million figure had been suggested decades earlier.] >>more...

The Shtetl: Myth and Reality (Studies in Polish Jewry);Almost-Insurmountable Jewish Economic Dominance. Root Causes of Polish anti-Jewish Hostilities. 1936 Przytyk Pogrom Debate,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
As with other works of the POLIN series, this one presents a lot of information, but often in a skin-deep manner. I focus on a few themes.


The Jews Amongst the Nations: In Defence of the Talmud;A Disappointingly-Brief Talmud Apologetic That Includes the Use of Some Rather Creative Thinking,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
This short (15-page) pamphlet was written in 1934 by Talmudic scholar Joseph Shapotshnick, who was President of the Rabbinical Association in England. The author called attention to the way that Adolf Hitler and Alfred Rosenberg were vilifying the Jewish people. (p. 3) >>more...

No Way Out: The Politics of Polish Jewry 1935-1939 (Monographs of the Hebrew Union College) ;The Ongoing Polish Emancipation From Jewish Economic Dominance: A Judeocentric Perspective,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The author surveys Polish-Jewish relations in pre-WWII Poland that had following the death of Jozef Pilsudski (1935-1939). Compared with most other Jewish authors, Emanuel Melzer is non-strident in his manner of expression, and he often presents both sides of the picture. However, he omits important facts, and I mention some of them, below, for the benefit of the reader.

: Library of Political Secrets - The Secret Driving Force of Communism;Hundreds of Leading Communists Who Were Jews: A Tabulation,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The author supports a conspiracy theory of Jews and Communism, asserting that Communism is a Jewish tool for destroying Christian civilization and ruling the world. However, the reader does not have to believe in conspiracy theories in order to make use of the information in this book. In addition, the reader may be aware of the fact that Jewish spokesmen commonly call on Poles and Christians to “confront the dark chapters in their history” and to “come to terms with the past.” All right, then. The Jews should perhaps be held to the same standard about THEIR past.

Bringing the Dark Past to Light: The Reception of the Holocaust in Postcommunist Europe;The Same Old, Standard Judeocentric Approach to the Holocaust. Attempts to Impose it on Eastern Europeans,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The only value of this book is the comprehensiveness of its treatment of public reception to the Holocaust throughout Eastern Europe. Otherwise, the reader who is looking for something new, or particularly enlightening, can stop right here. It does not. It treats the Holocaust as self-evidently supreme over all other genocides, and never stops hammering this point into the heads of the many Eastern European peoples. >>more...

The Holocaust in Israeli Public Debate in the 1950s: Ideology and Memory;When Jewish Collaboration With the Nazis Was Recognized as a Valid Consideration. Strong Anti-Polish Innuendo,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
This works features the Judenrat controversy, the question of Jewish heroism, martyrdom, and "passivity". However, this stands out over everything else in this book: >>more...

: Antisemitism: Its History and Cause;Universality of Anti-Semitism. Especially Good on Anti-Semitism in Pre-Christian Antiquity

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The author was a French Jew, and professed to offer a middle view--between that of the anti-Semite and the philo-Semite. (p. 5). My review is based on the original 1903 English-language edition of the 1894 French work. Owing to its comprehensiveness, I can only focus on a few issues.
