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...

Israeli Society, the Holocaust and its Survivors (Paperback)

Tuesday, November 22, 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 Construction of European Holocaust Memory: German and Polish Cinema after 1989 (Warsaw Studies in Jewish History and Memory)

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
Author Malgorzata Pakier introduces her book as follows, “In recent years, commemoration of the Holocaust has become a major political, cultural, and educational issue for the European Union…There is no other historical event to which European institutions have demonstrated any comparable deep commitment. It is manifest in such initiatives as the European Parliament’s ‘Resolution on Remembrance of the Holocaust, Antisemitism, and Racism’ approved on January 27, 2005, the sixtieth anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, and in the adoption of legislation criminalizing denial of the Holocaust at the level of the European Union under the German presidency in April 2007. The European Union has also played a key role in setting up the Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, launched on the occasion of the International Forum on the Holocaust, which took place in Stockholm in 2000.” (p. 9) >>more...

Aniti- Semitism:The essence (in answer to Fr. Szczerbinski’s article “Anti-Semitism in Poland from non-Jewish prospective)*, or Semitic reality only? Is it possible to deny to the Jew to be a good and honest man?

Saturday, September 17, 2016
The author of this article( Fr Szczerbinski) is an expert in Jewish-Polish relations, and is very knowledgably familiar in the Judaist thoughts and the Judaism in particular. His voice could be considered  an official stance of catholic milieu in the scientific exchange and the   conversation between Jews and Poles... He is also a head of the Institute of the Jewish Cultural Institution, as well as part of the Christian dialogue between Judaism and Christianity in particular Catholicism. >>more...

Saturday, September 17, 2016
I.Terminologia :a.prekariat Sam termin budzi juz rozne skojarzenia. W obecnym rozumieniu termin  sugeruje sie rożne jego rozumienie gdy chodzi o opis  warunków w jakich zyja prekariusze.  .  I tak proponuje sie , aby mówic o  prekariacie miejsca , bo własnie w miejscu pracy, czy fizycznej obecnosci w danym panstwie, gdzie ta  sytuacja  fizycznie zaistniała.
