IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF JEDWABNE;Contrary to the Media Narrative, This IPN Investigation Did Not "Prove Jan T. Gross Right" On Polish Guilt at Jedwabne,

Sunday, January 15, 2017
IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF JEDWABNE is the English-language translation of WOKOL JEDWABNEGO. I review these two volumes because the results of Poland's IPN (Institute of National Remembrance) investigation have been widely misrepresented and iconized by the media.

Owing to the breadth of the content of these volumes, I focus specifically on the barn burning of Jews, and on questions regarding the credibility of the outcomes of court cases early in Communist rule over Poland. Because so much has already been written about Jedwabne, I strive to draw my own conclusions instead of repeating those of others.

WHAT JAN T. GROSS CLAIMED

In his NEIGHBORS, neo-Stalinist Jan T. Gross had asserted that Poles, acting freely and alone, and with the Germans present only as spectators and photographers, herded the Jews of Jedwabne into a barn and burned them alive. (This is crucial. Gross has tried to backpedal a bit from his original statements.)

WHAT THE IPN INVESTIGATION ACTUALLY FOUND

The fact that the IPN did NOT "prove Gross correct" is evident from the following English-language summary statement by investigator Pawel Machcewicz, (quote) Another controversy surrounds the role of the Germans who were present at Jedwabne on July 10, 1941 >>more...

The Rulers of Russia;Jews in Communism as a Fulfillment of Secularized Jewish Messianism. Insights on Freemasonry,

Sunday, January 15, 2017
The author was an Irish Catholic priest. Whether in agreement with the author or not, the reader may be impressed by the vibrancy of his writing, and the way it contrasts with the mush that characterizes most Catholic writings today. (My review is based on the original 1940 edition).

Why bring up Jews in Communism? For one thing, there is a tendency to airbrush this uncomfortable fact out of history. In addition, Jews commonly call on Poles to "face up to the dark chapters in their history" and to "come to terms with the past" for relatively trivial Polish wrongs to Jews. By the same standard, then, Jews should be called upon to "face up to the dark chapters in their history" and to "come to terms with the past" for their essential role in Communism and all its crimes. >>more...

Why the Jews?: The Reason for Antisemitism;The Moral/Cultural Nihilism of Many Influential Jews: Weimar Germany, USA, etc. Implications of Polonophobia,

Sunday, January 15, 2017
This work is a curious mixture of the very astute and the very superficial. I focus on a few major issues.

BLAMING JEWS COLLECTIVELY?

A major theme of Prager’s book is the one about Jews as a whole being unfairly blamed for the actions of a small number of Jews who committed misdeeds (e. g., Jewish Communists). But, unfortunately, that is exactly what Jews commonly do to others. For instance, Jews regularly call on Poles to “face up to the dark chapters of their history”, to “come to terms with the past”, and even to “give up the heroic narrative of Poles fighting the Nazis”---all just because some tiny fraction of 1% of Poles collaborated with the Nazis against Jews. So, if Poles are to be saddled with some form of collective responsibility, or collective accountability, for the misdeeds of a small number of their members, so also should Jews. Either that, or we have a clear double standard. >>more...

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.

PREWAR POLISH ANTI-SEMITISM HAS BEEN EXAGGERATED

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...

Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil;Jews--and Not Poles---Who Collaborated With the Nazis, Were Decisive in the Destruction of Europe's Jews by the Germans (Nazis)

Sunday, January 15, 2017
This classic provides a wealth of information, and upends many of the Holocaust myths that have accreted in the over-50 years since this work was written by the courageous Jewish author. Though relatively old, Jewish author Hannah Arendt's work goes a long way towards undoing the mystification of the Holocaust. >>more...

Sunday, January 15, 2017
Why bring up this subject? Because Jews commonly say that Poles have to "Face up to the dark chapters in their history" and to "Come to terms with the past." What is good for the goose is good for the gander. >>more...

The Renaissance of Jewish Culture in Weimar Germany by Michael Brenner (1998-09-10;Well Before the Nazis, the German Jews Were Already Moving Away From Assimilation and Into Separatism (a Jewish VOLK),

This book contains much interesting information. For example, the Talmud (Makkot 10a) states that one learned much Torah from one’s teachers, but more from one’s colleagues, and the most from one’s students. (p. 69). >>more...

The Twisted Beliefs that Drove the Third Reich

Sunday, January 15, 2017
I focus only on Hitler’s apparent supportive statements of God and religion my review, and, owing to space limitations, do not discuss his many anti-religious statements and acts (e. g, see p. 130).

Weikart takes a balanced but critical view of the sources that he uses. For instance, when it comes to HITLER'S TABLE TALK and its content that portrays Hitler as an atheist, Weikart points out that the accepted Picker and Jochmann German-language editions show Hitler to be as anti-Christian as do the veracity-challenged editions. (p. 282). When it comes to Hermann Rauschning, Richard Weikart is willing to tentatively accept many of Rauschning's statements on Hitler. (pp. 283-284; See also p. 380). >>more...

Tematy tabu w powojennym Izraelu

Sunday, December 4, 2016
Żydzi mają wiele trupów w szafie, tematów, które są tabu. I nie wolno ich poruszać, bo mogłyby pokazać, jak jedni Żydzi potrafili być podli wobec innych Żydów. Wiele z takich tematów poruszył w swojej książce „Żydzi” Piotr Zychowicz (na pracę składają się artykuły i wywiady przeprowadzone przez autora). >>more...
