Two American Guys React to Marcin Wrona's "Demon" 2016
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.

I watched the clip. The discussion features unnecessary use of profanity (in Polish and English), and its content has almost no relevance to Polish-Jewish relations.ReplyDelete
Stopantisemitism (USA) writes "Every 9 out of 10 Polish Jews were gassed, starved and killed in Poland during the Holocaust.ReplyDelete
Now they’re refusing to give back Jewish property they stole while massacring us."
The text ignores German Nazi responsibility for the killings and plundering. The text does not inform, that US Jewish organisations would not obtain 'back', because their connection to pre-war Polish Jews is small and their help was minimal.
I am unable to find any information about stopantisemitism.org - no names, no organisations. Bad Poland (from JPost) https://www.stopantisemitism.org/antisemitic-incidents-87/polish-government-passes-law-blocking-property-restitution-to-holocaust-victimsReplyDelete
Israeli politician Yair Lapid falsely accused Poland. It seems he gots only little support. He probably looses not because he is a liar, but because of Kabul tragedy. If he repeats his accusations, he may be supported by liberal and Jewish media, who misuse the Holocaust for power.ReplyDelete
Government of Poland crticizes Israeli youth trips to Poland. The young perople misbehave, are isolated by their Israeli bodyguards, not allowed to contact young Poles. Some people suggest that the Israelis shouls visit Berlin, where the Holocaust was invented, and only later come to Poland. Now they are indoctrinated that Poland is a Jewish cemetery.ReplyDelete
Polish-Jewish journalist Pawel Jedrzejewski describes US support for Lapid as "US arrogance and Israeli hysteria". Jewish activist Professor Spiewak rejects accusations. His son, a city activist, prizes the government of Poland.ReplyDelete
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jew_with_a_coin After years of 'academic' studies Jew with a coin figurines and pictures are unallowed in Cracow Cloth Hall. Some Jews find the local politics officous, they do not find the figurines antisemitic.ReplyDelete
A Jewish activist from Canada, 7000 followers: "Poles sent millions Jews to their death. Poland played a huge role in the Holocaust. No matter how much Holocaust denial comes from Poland the facts remain the same."ReplyDelete
The revisionism continues. I am waiting for Germany to turn up on the Allied Side in the next version of WW2. Maybe it will spend an interim period in the Neutral camp?Delete
Is there anything the world tells us that we can safely believe?
Merkel called D-Day a "unique, unprecedented military operation that eventually brought us in Germany the liberation from National Socialism".Delete
Ack. Thanks for sharing that, Lukasz.Delete
What is your opinion about such name 'Poland Never Again Tour'? My English is too bad to evaluate it.ReplyDelete
But it has probably already happened. Germany was more important than Poland during D-Day anniversary. See 'Normand format'.ReplyDelete
Normandy Format - The group was created on June 6, 2014, when leaders from France, Germany, Russia, and Ukraine met on the margins of the 70th anniversary of the D-Day (Wikipedia)ReplyDelete
To be exact, Ukraine is not a partner here.ReplyDelete
