Pogrom or revange (Repraisal);The Truth About the So-Called Parczew Pogrom in post-WWII Poland,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
POGROM OR REPRISAL? is the title of this scholarly, Polish-language work. Noted historian Marek Jan Chodakiewicz introduces this work, stressing the fact that author Mariusz Bechta has done an extensive examination (with Benedictine-style patience!) of the pertinent archives (p. 14), and that, had Polish forces been out to “finish Hitler’s job” by killing Jews indiscriminately, FAR more Jews would have died than actually did. (p. 12). >>more...

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 Collected Courses of the Academy of European Law;Includes Details on Genocide, But Omits the Important Israeli Trials of Jewish Kapos

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
Israel's Nazi and Nazi Collaborators (Punishment) Law 1950, best known for its application in the trial of Adolf Eichmann, was originally enacted to punish Jews who had collaborated with the Nazis against other Jews. (pp. 128-129). The law stemmed from the following: There were 200,000 Holocaust survivors in the young State of Israel, and they angrily wanted the collaborators to be brought to justice. (p. 144). >>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...

: 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.

: Cursing the Christians?: A History of the Birkat HaMinim;The Long History of a Jewish Malediction Against Christianity. A Call for Mutual Self-Examination. The HAREDIM's Conduct,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
This is a fascinating, technical book. The author traces the history of the BIRKAT HAMINIM from antiquity, through the Middle Ages, and to modern times. In recent times, this prayer has been softened, with removal of reference to enemies, and with the condemnation of evil, as an abstraction, having replaced the condemnation of sinners. (pp. 156-on). >>more...
