TWO SIDES TO THE STORY OF POLISH ANTI-SEMITISM

Much has been written about prewar Polish boycotts of Jewish merchants, but very little about the other side of the coin. Jewish merchants had banded together to maintain their age-old economic hegemony, engaging in what is now called Jewish ethnic solidarity. Piotr Kosobudzki, a glazier by profession, noted how the Jewish glaziers at Lodz and Dobra had united to (unsuccessfully) drive the newcomer Polish glaziers out of business. (pp. 20-21). Where Jews saw anti-Semitism and discrimination, Poles saw emancipation from Jewish economic dominance: "...the Endeks encouraged Poles to wrest commerce out of the hands of the Jews. More and more Poles began opening shops, and more and more Poles began earning bread and favorable living conditions." (p. 22). >>more...

The POlish Jew social and economical value: Fascinating 1906 Analysis of Polish-Jewish Relations in Late-Tsarist Russian Ruled Poland

Thursday, March 30, 2017
This British author's understanding of Jews is quite different from that of westerners [review based on the original 1906 edition], and she points out that her conclusions are supported by eight years' residence in Russian-ruled central Poland. (see the Preface). >>more...

Polish-Jewish Relations During the Second World War

Tuesday, March 28, 2017
The main author, Jewish historian Emmanuel Ringelblum, had been a member Poalei Zion Left—which was somewhere between Communist-lite and Communist. One of the editors, Shmuel Krakowski, was a long-term Jewish Communist in Soviet-ruled Poland. For these reasons, the reader should be cautious in trusting the information presented in this book, especially when it touches on Polish conduct during the Holocaust. >>more...

Poland's Jews: Minority Rights or Special Separate-Nation Rights?

Jewish author Oscar Janowsky is quite even-handed on this subject. He presents a wealth of information. I organize the topics as follows:

History of Poland's Jews, the Partitions, and the Russian Century Afterward;Jewish hostility to the POlish State authour Dubnow

Tuesday, March 28, 2017
The first volume begins with the Jews of pre-Partition Poland. Boleslaw the Pious, in 1264, codified the rights of Jews. Based on papal bulls (e. g., Innocent IV in 1247; V1, p. 179), the blood libel was repudiated as groundless, and a Jew could not be convicted of this offense unless supported by three Polish and three Jewish witnesses. (V1, p. 47). Later, Sigismund Augustus (1564, 1566), enacted a similar policy. (V1, p. 88). In addition, Casimir the Great (V1, pp. 50-on) and John III Sobieski (V1, p. 165) were notably friendly towards Jews. >>more...

Prewar Polish Anti-Semitism. Jewish Economic Privileges in Poland

Tuesday, March 28, 2017
Jewish scholar Joseph Marcus eschews the knee-jerk anti-Polish generalizations that typify material on this subject in favor of a thorough examination of the Jewish situation prior to Polish independence (1870-1918) and in preWWII Poland (1918-1939). It soon becomes obvious that all the indignities and injustices that Polish Jews experienced occurred within the broader context of overall Polish tolerance in the face of considerable development of Jewish economic life. Ironically, Polish anti-Semitism festered and grew primarily because Polish Jews had been so successful in the first place-actually and perceptively at Polish expense. >>more...

To live with honor to die with honor: Jewish getto archives

Tuesday, March 28, 2017
This is THE historical document on the Warsaw Ghetto. Inhabitants of the Warsaw ghetto documented their lives on paper. Knowing full well that they would probably not survive the war, they buried the documents in 3 milkcans. After the war, they found two of the three. This book is, as far as I know, the only part of the archive that has been translated in to English and published. Documents include everything from a program of a children's play to studies on starvation and copies of Nazi edicts. Hopefully more volumes will follow. >>more...
