Matitiahu Minc

  1. The title if from the article by Jan Blonski, which provoked a storm of controversy in Poland. It appeared for the first time in Tygodnik Powszechny, 2 (1987), and was later reprinted in the author's collection of essays under the same title, Jan Blonski, Biedni Polacy patrza na Getto, (Krakow: WL, 1994). The article appeared in English under the title, “Poor Poles Look at the Ghetto, Yad Vashem Studies, 19 (1989), pp. 341-355.
  2. The text of the memorandum was published in Yiddish in the anthology Henryk Ehrlich un Wiktor Alter: A Leben fun Kempfer, A Toit fun Martyren, edited by B. Hart (New York: Bund, 1943), pp. 188-195.

  7. No argument could be more offensive than the one that is common in Israel under the influence of deconstruction, which maintains that the survivors were like a shapeless mass in the hands of Zionist manipulators.
