A Survey of Jewish History in Poland. Understanding Judeopolonia, etc., This review is from: Zydzi w dziejach Polski (Polish Edition) JEWS IN THE DEALINGS OF POLAND is the title of this Polish language book. It starts with the beginnings of the Jewish religion (JEPD hypothesis) and ends with the Solidarity Movement. This book cites a large number of obscure sources. This means that the author brings to light a good deal of information that would otherwise be generally unknown, but also means that it is difficult to check most of his sources. Although Wysocki is often critical of Jews, he is even-handed in blaming both Polish and Jewish nationalists for the negative aspects of pre-WWII Polish-Jewish relations. (p. 116). >>more...Monday, October 31, 2011
During WWII the German civilian camp system held eighteen million inmates of which over five million were Jews. In the perspective of human suffering one should note that the number of 3.5 million Soviet prisoners of war starved to death was larger than the number of 3.06 million Jews murdered in the Nazi gas chambers in the extermination camps. An additional 1.2 million Jews were killed by the Einsatzgrupen (Atrocity Troups) and one half of a million Jews were killed in each in the main concentration camps, or died in the ghettos including those who were killed during transport. The Jewish victims were a part of the 25 million non-combat civilians killed during WWII.Friday, October 28, 2011
This short book (review based on original 1919 edition) is packed with information. The data is from Austrian sources. These indicate that 59% of the population of Eastern Galicia was Ruthenian (Ukrainian), and that Polish majorities existed not only in Lwow and other cities, but also in many large enclaves north of the Dniester (Dnister) River, especially in the Tarnopol (Ternopil) area. (pp. 3-5). >>more...Friday, October 28, 2011

Marian Marzynski has produced a long and tedious film that not only exhibits a pronounced Polonoophobic slant, but fails to inform the viewer about the proper context of the tragic events that took place. A much better and objective source of information about Shtetl life, in my opinion, is the book SHTETL, by Eva Hoffman >>more...Monday, October 17, 2011
Dzięki stosowaniu procentów składanych bogaci Żydzi podwajali swój stan posiadania z pokolenia na pokolenie i byli ważną częścią finansiery na świecie. Bezpośrednio po Drugiej Wojnie Światowej żydowscy właściciele hoteli w Nowym Jorku wywieszali napis "Żydom Wstęp Wzbroniony" ponieważ uważali, że w ten sposób więcej zarobią niż gdyby wynajmowali pokoje Żydom. >>more...Sunday, October 16, 2011
Kazimierz Siemionowicz was a Polish-Lithuanian artillery general as well as a military engineer and a gunsmith. He was artillery specialist and pioneer of rocketry. He was born in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and he served the armies of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth which since 1569 became a Nobless Democracy in which by 1634 lived over one million of free citizens. General Siemionowicz spent a few years in the Netherlands where he published in Latin his pioneering book on rocketry. No portrait or detailed biography of him has survived and much of his life is a subject of dispute. He was educated at the Jesuit University of Vilno and was fascinated by artillery since childhood, and he studied many sciences to increase his knowledge (mathematics, mechanics, hydraulics, architecture, optics, tactics). In 1632-1634 he took part in the war against Muscovy in the siege of Biała under general Mikołaj Abromowicz and in 1644 he took part in the Battle of Ochmatów. During the Spanish-Dutch war; he participated in the Siege of Hulst in 1645. In 1646 he returned to Poland, when King Wladyslaw IV created the Polish artillery corps and gathered specialists from Western Europe, planning a war against Turkey and its vassal the Crimean Tartars. He served as an engineering expert in the field of artillery and rocketry in the royal artillery forces. From 1648 he served as Second in Command of Polish Royal Artillery. In late 1648 the newly elected king John Casimir Vaza who gave up plans for the war with Ottomans advised him to return to the Netherlands and publish his studies there. In 1649 Siemienowicz decided to work on his book and publish it in Amsterdam. >>more...Sunday, October 16, 2011
Ważnym tłem Powstania Listopadowego był plan Adama Czartoryskiego z 1815 roku zjednoczenia wszystkich ziem zaborów Polski w Królestwie Polskim stworzonym w unii personalnej Polski z Rosją. W celu umożliwienia tego projektu dzięki staraniom Adama Czartoryskiego, 3 stycznia 1815 roku, Rosja i Prusy podpisały porozumienie o zjednoczeniu wszystkich ziem polskich w unii personalnej z Rosją, włącznie z zaborem pruskim, w zamian za zdominowanie Saksonii przez Królestwo Pruskie dzięki poparciu Rosji. >>more...Monday, October 10, 2011
1. Na co Polska może być jeszcze potrzebna? Jaki jest/może być sens polskości (Polski) dla Polaków, jaki dla tutejszych, jaki dla sąsiadów, dla innych (dla naszego regionu, dla Europy, dla świata)? Józef Piłsudski powiedział, że Polska jest skazana na wielkość. Wątpię aby potrafił to wytłumaczyć, czy rozumiał co mówił, ze względu na jego poważne luki edukacyjne, on raczej wyczuwał pewne rzeczy intuicyjnie. Ale miał rację. Chodzi o to, że Polska będzie albo wielka i zatriumfuje, albo skundlona i powoli zwiędnie. Nie ma innej opcji. >>more...Wednesday, October 5, 2011
Having been excluded for decades from the rewards of worldly advancement, our friends [in the post-Soviet Bloc] had failed to cultivate those arts - hypocrisy, treachery, and Realpolitik - without which it is impossible to stay in government. They sat in their offices for a while, pityingly observed by their staff of former secret policemen, while affable and much traveled rivals, of the kind with whom German Social Democrats and French Gaullists could both "do business", carefully groomed themselves for the next elections. Not since 1945 had so many records of communist party membership disappeared, or so many dissident biographies been invented. Within two years the real dissidents had returned to their studies, while the world outside was racing on, led by a new political class that had learned to add a record of outspoken dissidence to all its other dissimulations. We were witnessing what [Czechoslovak Communist Alexander] Dubcek had promised, socialism with a human face. The most urgent preoccupation of this new political class was to climb on to the European Union gravy train, which promised rewards of a kind that had been enjoyed in previous years only by the inner circle of the secret police.| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22 | 23 | 24 | 25 | 26 | 27 | 28 | 29 | 30 | 31 | 32 | 33 | 34 | 35 | 36 | 37 | 38 | 39 | 40 | 41 | 42 | 43 | 44 | 45 | 46 | 47 | 48 | 49 | 50 | 51 | 52 | 53 | 54 | 55 | 56 | 57 | 58 | 59 | 60 | 61 | 62 | 63 | 64 | 65 | 66 | 67 | 68 | 69 | 70 | 71 | 72 | 73 | 74 | 75 | 76 | 77 | 78 | 79 | 80 | 81 | 82 | 83 | 84 | 85 | 86 | 87 | 88 | 89 | 90 | 91 | 92 | 93 | 94 | 95 | 96 | 97 | 98 |
