Theological and Halakhic Reflections on the Holocaust

Sunday, April 20, 2014
This work includes the early-postwar testimonies of rabbis, and their lucid and moving description of the sufferings of the Jews. This included not only the brutal murders of 6 million innocent men, women, and children, but also the systematic destruction of centuries of Jewish civilization. The heartfelt descriptions brought me to tears.

Observing America's Jews (Brandeis Series in American Jewish History, Culture, and Life)

Sunday, April 20, 2014
Author Marshall Sklare was a Jewish American sociologist who had studied America's Jews. [Review based on 1993 edition]. He was eminently qualified to speak on this subject. A number of coauthors had joined him. Most of the themes of this book are familiar: Jewish self-identity, Jewish mobility, intermarriage with non-Jews, Jewish support for Israel, Jewish philanthropy, Jewish conversions and resistance to them, etc. There is relatively little on the role of the Shoah in the self-identity of American Jews. >>more...

Polish Collaboration and Polish Underground Justice Under the Spotlight,

Saturday, April 5, 2014
PUNITIVE POLAND 1939-1945 is approximately the title of this Polish-language book. This work is yet another refutation of the silly notion that Poles are so imbued with their "heroic narrative" of fighting the Nazis that they are unwilling to discuss "dark chapters" of Polish history. In fact, heroic behaviors and cowardly behaviors were mirror images of each other under the brutalities of the German occupation. (p. 107). The Polish Blue Police (POLICJA GRANATOWA) exemplified this divide. A significant fraction (perhaps over 10%) were involved in the Polish Underground, while another fraction collaborated with the enemy or engaged in exploitative or bandit conduct. (e. g, p. 99, 111). >>more...

This work (review based on original 1947) edition is helpful in understanding how the Jewish survivors of the German-made Holocaust emerged from hiding, described their wartime experiences, and were attempting to rebuild their lives. It also gives insights into Soviet-ruled Poland, and the impending imposition of the Communist puppet state. >>more...

Związki Żydów z komunizmem w USA

Monday, March 17, 2014
Amerykańscy lewicowi Żydzi byli bardzo mocno związani z społecznością żydowską. Nawet na łamach anarchistycznych pism wydawanych przez Żydów, Żydzi - anarchiści manifestowali swoją żydowskość i judaizm. >>more...

Żydzi w kierownictwie UB – stereotyp czy rzeczywistość?

Tuesday, March 11, 2014
W opinii wielu Polaków gros kadry oficerskiej tajnej policji politycznej w powojennej Polsce stanowili Żydzi. Nie wnikając w przyczyny nadreprezentacji Żydów i osób pochodzenia żydowskiego w kierownictwie aparatu bezpieczeństwa w Polsce ani w ich indywidualne motywacje decydujące o podjęciu takiej służby, warto pamiętać, że po wojnie stanowili oni niespełna 1 proc. ludności Polski. >>more...

Operation Shylock : A Confession (Vintage International)

Sunday, February 23, 2014
Jews Massively Moving Back to Poland--in the Jewish Imagination, February 4, 2014 This review is from: Operation Shylock : A Confession (Vintage International) (Paperback) Many reviews already describe the main features of this book, and my review tackles it from a different angle. By way of introduction, some Poles have been concerned with a potential erosion of Poland's sovereignty owing to growing Jewish influence over Poland, and some Poles have gone as far as suggesting that Jews could massively come back to live in Poland, and even create a latter-day Judeopolonia. >>more...
