In Those Nightmarish Days: The Ghetto Reportage of Peretz Opoczynski and Josef Zelkowicz (New Yiddish Library Series)

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
This work features the written works of Peretz Opoczynski (Warsaw ghetto) and Jozef Zelkowicz (Lodz ghetto). Much of the everyday information has been presented before (see the first comment under this review). For this reason, my review devotes considerable attention to the sociology and politics of Poland’s prewar Jews. >>more...

The conquering Jew

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
Author John Foster Fraser, a Briton, states that his work is written from neither a pro- nor anti-Semitic viewpoint. (p. 1). He emphasizes the Jews of Europe and the USA. This work describes the many Jewish successes in so many endeavors. [My review is based on the original 1915 edition.] >>more...

Jews and Revolution in Nineteenth-Century Russia (Paperback)

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The Jewish revolutionary activity, as discussed in this book, centered on revolutionary Populism. That based on Marxism was not to emerge until the 1890’s. (p. xii).

Interestingly, the anarchist Bakunin opposed the Jewish revolutionaries. He saw them as purveyors of “bourgeois socialism”, and followers of “German Jews”. (p. 25). >>more...

Israel in Europe

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
My review is based on the original 1907 edition. This work covers a broad swath of Jewish history, beginning with Classical Antiquity. It is rather philosemitic in tone, with a tendency towards a lachrymose interpretation of Jewish history. Because there are so many different issues raised, I focus on just a few of them: >>more...

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...

Jewish Life in 19th-Century Russian-Ruled Poland (Present-Day Belarus). Inadvertent Correction of Lanzmann's anti-Polish SHOAH,Journey to a Nineteenth-Century Shtetl: The Memoirs of Yekhezkel Kotik (Raphael Patai Series in Jewish Folklore and Anthropology) (Paperback)

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The setting of this work is the town of Kamenets (Kamyenyets, Kamieniec), which is located not far south of the famous Bialowieza Forest. Because there is so much information presented, I divide my review into specialized topics, and emphasize those of broader relevance to Jewish-Polish relations. >>more...

Jews and Poles Oppressed by the Tsar. Insights into Jewish Business Advantages. Jews Have Expelled Other Jews,

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
This work follows a lachrymose approach to the Jews of 19th-century tsarist Russia, but is also cognizant of the sufferings of the Poles. (My review is based on the 1970 reprint of the original 1892 edition). >>more...

Poland and the Polish Question: Impressions and Afterthoughts

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
The reviewer was a Briton (p. 135), and her work was inspired by her visit to Poland in 1913. (p. 7). My review is based on the original 1915 edition. This work provides a comprehensive survey of Polish history up to that time, and includes a moderate amount of material on Polish culture. Author Ninian Hill is not sympathetic to the cause of Polish independence. She suggests that the best that Poles can hope for is being united into one geographic unit, and with autonomy, under one of the Partitioning powers. [How wrong she was!] >>more...
