Books! Free or Cheap! Come and Get 'Em!

Books Books Books! Come and Get 'Em!

Books on Polish topics. Books on Jewish topics. Books on Polish-Jewish topics.

Some are FREE! Some are CHEAP!

No offer will be turned away!

I need to de-cumulate a bit. Many of these are very good books. I am not giving them away because of their quality, but for other reasons.

Have a look!

If you see a book you want, please email me or post in the comments section. If the book is popular, brand new, and in good condition, I will ask for the standard used price from Amazon. If the book is older, with highlighting, I will probably send you the book just for whatever it costs for me to pack and post it.

  1. I am also divesting myself of some of these same books or similar tomes. Right now they are ensconced in boxes in the basement. Good luck on re-homing yours. Mothers in the Fatherland is a must read I do believe. Christina Pacosz

  2. I am interested in Maps and Shadows for sure! Let me know what you are thinking on shipping/price.

  3. Also Mothers in the Fatherland.. this is exciting for me. A lot of these books look incredibly fascinating!

  4. My name is Ben Bieganski, I am doing some reasearch on your book to see where this is all coming from. My grandpa Leo Bieganski was 100% Polish and I believe I can pull up some history on this topic. His parent can directly from Poland and I am able to trace this tree back quite far. Look forward to getting through this book.


Bieganski the Blog exists to further explore the themes of the book Bieganski the Brute Polak Stereotype, Its Role in Polish-Jewish Relations and American Popular Culture.
These themes include the false and damaging stereotype of Poles as brutes who are uniquely hateful and responsible for atrocity, and this stereotype's use in distorting WW II history and all accounts of atrocity.
