The Institute of National Remembrance Exhibition on German Business Beneficiaries of Nazism

 Poland's Institute of National Remembrance opened an open-air exhibition addressing German businesses who benefitted economically from Nazism. You can read more here Thanks to Jerzy for sending this in. 


  1. I am reading Polish translation of "The Match" by Harlan Coben. It says that US Army liberated Auschwitz. The Army liberated a number of Auschwitz prisoners, who survived the cruel evacuation. The camp was liberated by the Soviets, few thousands of prisoners were there. I do not know if the error exists in the original book or it is a mistranslation.

  2. German History Professor declares that Poland under recent government is an enemy of Germany,
    Prof. i. R. Dr. Ronald G. Asch

  3. Heinrich Himmler complained that German businessman had a vested interest in keeping their Jewish forced laborers alive. Think of Oskar Schindler.

  4. Probably Rafal/Raphael Lemkin "The enemy nation within the control of Germany must be destroyed, disintegrated, or weakened in different degrees for decades to come. [...] In this respect genocide is a new technique of occupation aimed at winning the peace even though the war itself is lost." Germany dominates Poland thanks to its Nazi predecessor. Germany is frequently perseived as a democratic country, an ally of the USA, Poland is frequently criticized.


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.
This blog welcomes comments from readers that address those themes. Off-topic and anti-Semitic posts are likely to be deleted.
