The Cigarette Sellers of Three Crosses Square (The Library of Holocaust Testimonies)

Friday, April 9, 2010
Instead of repeating other reviewers, I focus mainly on barely-mentioned and unmentioned content. The story of the Jewish boys who sold cigarettes in the Polish side of Warsaw is a moving one. The Jewish boys met Polish boys who bullied them, and other Polish boys who protected them. (p. 116). The Jewish boys obtained fake identification (pp. 125-126), probably from the Zegota, a one-of-a-kind Polish organization of aid to Jews (unmatched anywhere in all of German-occupied Europe. >>more...

The eighteenth decisive battle of the world: Warsaw, 1920 (Russian studies)

Friday, April 9, 2010
he 1920 War was not the first time that Poland had saved Europe. D'Abernon comments: "In 1684 the Ottoman invasion made its furthest advance west. The Battle of Vienna was one of the occasions when Europe owed safety to Polish valour. Already at Chocim in 1280 Polish arms attained an important victory over Asiatic assailants, but the danger was even more grave before the walls of Vienna, and John Sobieski earned the gratitude of all who value the maintenance of European civilisation." (p. 11). >>more...

Katyń:rozmydlone obchody, brak uznania faktów

Wednesday, April 7, 2010
Juz po obchodach w Katyniu . Na cmentarnych  dołach , przy murze z tabliczkami tylko niewiele osób wspominajacych swoich pomordowanych. Prasa  codzienna, jak „Wyborcza” czy „Rzeczypospolita” rozpisywała się dość  dużo o wydarzeniach jak tez obchodach w Katyniu z udziałem premierów Polski i Rosji. W „Wyborczej „mozna było znaleść, nawet cały  tekst przemówień Premierow :Tuska  i Putina.   Podano  kilka  innych informacji  czy  nawet refleksji w postaci wypowiedzi Polska bez Ojca.” >>more...

Anatomia tzw. buntu czyli nasz triumf i neo-Matrix

Thursday, April 1, 2010
Nastąpił pewien poważny przełom w wykładni historii w Polsce. Jest to zasługą przede wszystkim środowiska konserwatywnego. To ono cierpliwą archeologią pamięci – wbrew potężnemu terrorowi intelektualnemu post-komunistów i ich apologetów -- odgrzebało paradygmat Prawdy i ponownie mozolnym wysiłkiem wzniosło polskie ramy odniesienia naszych dziejów. Instytut Pamięci Nardowej jest ukoronowaniem tego tradycjonalistycznego dzieła. Ale nie będę tutaj opisywać wysiłków rodem ze środowisk Arcanów czy Glaukopisu, które po wielu latach zaowocowały logocentrycznym ukierunkowaniem IPN i wybuchem niezależnych badań >>more...

Pavement of Hell: Three Leaders of the Judenrat

Wednesday, March 31, 2010
This three-part book focuses on the lives of Chaim Rumkowski (Rumkovsky) of the Lodz (Litzmannstadt) Ghetto, Adam Czerniakow of the Warsaw Ghetto, and Jacob Gens of the Vilna (Wilno, Vilnius) Ghetto. Tushnet consistently brings up examples of behaviors in these men that were variously harmful and at other times helpful towards fellow Jews facing the unfolding Holocaust. He also cites a selection of Jewish opinions on the character of these Judenrat leaders >>more...

The Case of Hotel Polski

Thursday, March 25, 2010
After the fall of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and the destruction of the Warsaw Ghetto, there were still some 10,000--30,000 Warsaw Jews still alive, but now hiding among Poles in the Aryan section of the city. (p. 10). The Hotel Polski in Warsaw became a focus of promises, by Nazis and their Jewish collaborators, for fugitive Jews to come out of hiding so that they could be amnestied by being declared foreign citizens. (pp. 12-13, 111). >>more...

Liliana's journal: Warsaw 1939-1945

Thursday, March 25, 2010
In common with countless Jewish and Polish eyewitnesses, the author describes the indiscriminate bombing and strafing of defenseless Polish civilians, by the Luftwaffe, during the German-Soviet conquest of Poland in 1939. (p. 11). She recognizes the fact that the Volksdeutschen were Poles of German descent. (p. 18). >>more...

Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and Rare Jewish Acknowledgement of the Communist GL-AL Killing Fugitive Jews,

Thursday, March 25, 2010
While describing the events that led up to and included the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising (1943), the author frequently mentions the many forms of Polish aid to Jews. (p. 19, 21, 45, 59, 68, 80, 88, 95, 98, 136). This included help from members of the Policja Granatowa (Polish Blue Police)(p. 63, 71), which has at times been misrepresented as a mostly collaborationist force. >>more...

Between tumbling walls

Saturday, March 20, 2010
This book is unusual in several respects. It contains a diary of life in Warsaw--not in the Warsaw Ghetto before the Jewish Uprising, but covert life in Aryan Warsaw after this Uprising. (pp. 115-157). >>more...
