From a Ruined Garden, Second Expanded Edition: The Memorial Books of Polish Jewry (Indiana-Holocaust Museum Reprint)

Saturday, March 24, 2012
This work, in its expanded 2nd edition, is an anthology of Jewish publications originally written mainly in Yiddish. It takes the "pulse" of Poland's once-huge Jewish community. The book title comes from a Holocaust survivor who, alluding to the rarity of Jewish survival, compared himself to one branch from one plant of a ruined garden. >>more...

Poland and the Western Powers, 1938-1939: A Study in the Interdependence of Eastern and Western Europe (Study in Political History)

Tuesday, March 13, 2012
This work is profusely documented. It details the efforts of the Polish government to remain scrupulously neutral in the face of the increasingly belligerent Soviets and Nazi Germans. For instance, when Poland signed a nonaggression pact with Nazi Germany, Communist propaganda (and even modern revisionistic Russian propaganda) twisted this pact into false Nazi-Polish alliance against the USSR. >>more...

Zionism in Poland: The Formaative years, 1915-1926

Tuesday, March 13, 2012
Zionism began among the Jews in Russian-occupied eastern Poland. Mendelsohn touches on the Litwaks (Litvaks): "The Litvaks, for example, were disliked by the `Polish' Jews [of Congress Poland] for being too secular, too revolutionary, and too pro-Russian (the Poles disliked them for similar reasons..." (p. 22). Unlike other Jewish authors who revile Dmowski for having stood up to the Jews, the author understands him: "The clash between the Russification policies of the Russian regime and Polish nationalism, while occasionally making possible Jewish-Polish alliances against the tsar, often had the effect of exacerbating Polish-Jewish relations. Those relations reached a new low in 1912, when Jewish support for a Polish socialist candidate to the Russian state Duma (parliament) resulted in an anti-Jewish boycott sponsored by the National Democrat party, which was particularly strong in this region." (p. 20). >>more...

Węgierska próba

Tuesday, February 28, 2012
Węgrzy usiłują zerwać ze spuścizną komunizmu i rozbić postkomunizm, czyli „układ”. Dlatego zagłosowali na Viktora Orbana i jego Fidesz. Przypomnijmy, że formacja ta wywodzi się z środowiska podobnego do Polskiej Unii Demokratycznej i Unii Wolności. Fidesz przeszedł ewolucję od socjalliberalizmu do narodowego konserwatyzmu. >>more...

The ZZW in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising; Conflicting Argumentation from Authorities

Monday, February 20, 2012
This work focuses on active hostility against the ZZW as the major cause of the ZZW’s neglect. The rift between the Jewish right and the Jewish left was extreme in Warsaw–so much so that it did not bring Jews fully together even in the face of Nazi genocide. (e. g., p. 3, 116, 171). The Revisionists were often dismissed as “Jewish fascists” and, even decades later, much of this attitude persisted. For example, long after WWII, ZOB veteran Marek Edelman openly scorned the ZZW. (p. 301). >>more...

Poland 1945;: A Red Cross diary,

Thursday, February 9, 2012
This diary covers the Middle East, Russia, and Poland. My review is limited to the latter.

The author's stay in Poland lasted from end-August 1945 through April 1946. When he first arrived at the ruins of Warsaw, he was less than a year removed from the Germans' systematic destruction of Warsaw that had followed the Soviet-betrayed Warsaw Uprising, and only several months removed from the Red Army's "liberation" of Warsaw's ruins. He stayed at the Polonia Hotel (p. 110), one of the locally few remaining usable structures. When the wind blew, he could sense the dust of bricks and smell the sweet-sickly odor of tens of thousands of decomposing corpses. (p. 112). Constantly collapsing walls were killing hundreds of additional Poles. >>more...
