Lynching of Castenge Ficarrotta and Angelo Albano. Tampa, Florida, 1910.

I refer to this image in a piece of writing and I wanted the image to be accessible to readers so I am posting it, below. 



  1. What does this photo have to do with Bieganski-related matters? And, if we are keeping score, aren't whites slain by blacks more common than blacks slain by whites?

  2. Jan Peczkis have a look at chapter four, Bieganski takes root in America. I understand that you gave your copy of the book away but perhaps you can find another copy and have another look at that chapter.

  3. I think that times have changed since you wrote the BIEGANSKI book. Both African Americans and Polish Americans are perceived quite differently today. In general, Polish Americans are seen as privileged whites.

    1. To understand this post, you need to read the book. If you have forgotten what the book says, read it again. Thanks.


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.
