Poles Were Untouched by Nazi Horrors: AISH, the Jewish Website

Polish peasants "living their lives normally" during World War II. 

 AISH, a Jewish website, published a claim that Poles were living their lives normally during World War II. This claim is so obscenely wrong it would take a book to refute it. Of course this claim reinforces the Bieganski, Brute Polak stereotype. 

A quote from the AISH website:

"'Poland is a beautiful country. I found it mind-boggling that all this evil was happening in a beautiful country. People were living their lives normally, while right next to them were gas chambers. There were apartment buildings right outside the camps. How can people live like that?'"

AISH has a pop up chat window. I addressed Rabbi Keyak, who appeared to have read my message. I see no attempt on his part to respond to this flagrant falsehood. I will leave the link for this post on the website so he can respond here if he cares to.

Thanks to Jerzy for sending this in. 


  1. This is "Jews were really the only victims" kind of thinking taken to its logical conclusion.

    1. Yes. History has been turned on its head. What other lies are we being told? But then isn't this whole system of things on the earth founded on a lie, the first lie ever told, in Eden?

  2. I think that opinions are very unfair - that Poles did not suffer during the World War II.
    I come from an average Polish family, my grandparents had a shop in Poznań before World War II. My mother's older sister, who suffered from epilepsy, was in a mental hospital in Owińska near Poznań in 1939. She was 10 years olt at that time. From September 1939, German soldiers occupied Poznań and Owińska. In the autumn of 1939, the Nazi German „Sonderkommando Lange“, as part of the T4 operation, murdered all the patients of the hospital (1,100 people - some in the forests north of Oborniki near Poznań, some were gassed in Fort VII - the first German concentration camp in occupied Poland). On November 11, 1939, they murdered all the children, including my aunt.
    Two months later, my grandfather was arrested by the Gestapo and imprisoned in the German concentration camp Fort VII. The prisoners were mostly Poles from the Wielkopolska region. Many were people who had been engaged in social and political life, as well as known Polish patriots and veterans of the Wielkopolska Uprising (1918–1919) – like my grandfather. In April 1940 he was transported from there, together with a group of other prisoners, to the German concentration camp in Dachau, and in June 1940 to the German death camp in Mauthausen Gusen in Austria. He was tortured to death there in September 1941.
    My grandmother and my mother were left alone, completely traumatized. Until the end of the war, my grandmother had to work in a German munitions factory. My mother did not go to school for 5 years because there was no education for Poles during the war.
    Please, don't let anyone tell me that Poles were living their lives normally during the war !!!
