You can read the transcript here


  1. Mazurkas by Jewish composers.

  2. Hello,

    On 14 August 1941 Father Maksymilian Kolbe was murdered by Germans in Auschwitz concentration camp. Execution was performed by lethal injection of carbolic acid. Father Kolbe volunteered to die in place of a stranger.

    "I'm a Catholic priest, I'm old, I want to die for him, he has a wife and children."
    Father Maksymiliam Kolbe (1894-1941)

  3. I sent out a second copy of Bieganski to someone. The recipient is Andrzej Kozlowski, a professor of mathematics at the University of Warsaw. I have found him to be amongst the sanest people to talk about Polish-Jewish relations.

    1. I am going to send another copy to someone and would like to know if you have someone you would like me to send it to or if you would like me to choose. This time I was thinking Seth Frantzman.

    2. Thank you very much! And I leave the decision to you. :-)
