15-Year-Old Outdated Content. Very One-Sided Book. Crucial Information Omitted :Jedwabne massacre

Saturday, October 17, 2015
Readers, save your time. Contrary to media hype, this book is of little value. It is a translation of materials written way back in 2000-2001—with a few slightly more recent, all of which had been published in the 2004 Polish-language book, MY Z JEDWABNEGO. The authors have repackaged decades-old text, and essentially presented it to the unsuspecting English-speaking reader as something new and dramatic. >>more...

Tajemnice dogmatów zjawiska zwanego religią holocaustu

Saturday, October 17, 2015
Zjawisko nazywane religią holocaustu ma cechy nowej świeckiej religii zlaicyzowanego Zachodu, głoszonej przez niezbyt religijnych Żydów. Celem religii holocaustu jest zachowanie jedności zeświecczonych Żydów, których wspólnota religijna w wyniku zanikania religii się rozpada. >>more...

he Course of the Holocaust

Sunday, October 11, 2015
This review is based on the 1982 edition. This book traces the Holocaust from early anti-Jewish teachings, the emergence of racial anti-Semitism, the rise of Nazi ideology, the decision to murder the Jews, the implementation of the Holocaust, rescue attempts, Jewish resistance, theological and philosophical implications, etc. Bauer soundly repudiates any notion of the German death camps being erected in German-occupied Poland because of the presumed anti-Semitism of the local population (p. 210). It was simply a matter of practicality. >>more...

Historical accuracy for the classroom? Forget it! Art Spiegelman makes no effort to correct the falsifications of history in MAUS in this METAMAUS volume. Instead, Spiegelman advances the following lame exculpations for his anti-Polish bigotry:

Jews and tax evasion

Thursday, September 17, 2015
The author identifies himself as Jewish. (p. x). His work consists of many details on the Jewish provisions, in rabbinical literature, dealing with gentiles.

JEWISH UNIVERSALISM: GENTILES WELCOMED INTO THE TEMPLE

Gentiles had access to the Temple, though it was limited, (quote) The two relevant meanings for our purposes are the Temple as YHWH’s residence and the Temple as the Israelites’ ethnic shrine. (unquote). (p. 303). Though author Gary Porton does not put it this way, this situation reflects the ambivalence of YHWH as a Jewish tribal Deity, and YHWH as the God of all peoples. [This corresponds to Polish scholar Feliks Koneczny’s idea of Judaism consisting of both monolatry and monotheism. >>more...

Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning

improved revue
The informed reader, familiar with Holocaust-related works, will quickly notice that much of what Snyder discusses has already been said before by other authors, and even by Snyder in his earlier books. I generally focus on the new content. Unfortunately, there are many flaws in this book (whence my two-star rating), and I later discuss a few of them >>more...

The Scholarly and Public Reception of the Holocaust

Friday, September 11, 2015
The reader may erroneously get the impression that this book is primarily about the trivialization of the Holocaust, or a retreat from its moral gravity. Such themes are only a modest portion of this book. Most of it is about how the Holocaust has been treated by academia and the media, little of which involves a softening or trivialization of Nazi crimes. A good deal of it is about how Germans try to relativize the crimes of their forebears. >>more...
