Poland: The Hate that Wouldn't Die

Roundup-of-jews-in-Poland WWII

Above image: Pictorial evidence of Polish Complicity - roundup of Jews in the town of Czestochwa, Poland on their way to the death camp at Treblinka. The Nazis could not have done this on their own.

Many of you know that I'm Iraqi, but did you know that I'm also Polish? Yes. It's a strange combination, bipolar at times. In one minute I can be the sweetest, nicest, squeaky-voiced "Come here so I can just EAT YOUR LITTLE FACE!" mom to a heavy breathing, rabid, screechy-voiced monster: "Come here so I can just SMACK YOUR LITTLE FACE!" 

Okay, those both sounded equally scary.

But no matter how scary I get, I'm not as scary as this picture at right. It's a picture of the Polish extermination camp, Treblinka. My grandmother, Fruma a"h, her two daughters, and Treblinka
another 738,000 Jews were gassed to death in this little piece of Hell. My father and his father, Hershel a"h, miraculously escaped being taken to the camp. You'll be reading more in the coming weeks on the Breslev Israel site.

Bottom line: the disgusting, murderous, anti-Semitic, bloodthirsty, evil Poles stole a mother from her son, a wife from her husband, two sisters from their brother, and a grandmother from her grandchildren. Times almost 800,000. And that's just one death camp.  

In a very difficult conversation, my father told me that if it weren't for the generous assistance of the Polish government and people, Germany would never have been able to occupy and murder many millions of Jews. 

G-d willing I will share with you one incident of many where my father narrowly escaped death by the bloody claws of the Polish people. Not even the Nazis. Not even the Polish government. The people themselves.

Torturing Jewish souls was even encouraged in the Polish schools. Rav Brody's mother also suffered physical torture by being turned into a bloody Pin Cushion by her classmates. Did the teachers do anything to stop them? Ha! 

And here we are, almost 80 years later, seeing the Polish evil wake up from its hibernation, fully recharged with fierce hate for the Jewish People.

Just last week, the Polish President signed a law to make any association between Poland and the Holocaust illegal.  

Yeah, that makes a whole 'lot of sense. Make it illegal to call you guilty. Idiots. Don't they realize that it makes them look even more guilty??

And now, the Polish Parliament is trying to outlaw kosher slaughter. 

Hmmm. They're better off putting up signs on every billboard in their country saying, "WE HATE THE JEWS!" At least it's honest. 

You know, there's nothing I can't stand more than hypocrisy. Can't. Stand. It.

If you're going to be evil, then don't try to hide it behind your "civilized" behavior and make-believe set of laws that fool most of the world into thinking you're a decent, functioning country with some level of morals. Clearly you're not. 

The fact that Poland is yet again picking on the Jews says one thing: they have never changed. Their hate, their intolerance, their unbelievable ignorance, jealousy, cruelty, barbarism - all that has never gone away. 

It's just been hiding, waiting for the right moment. 

Just look at how many death camps, euthanasia camps, and killing centers there were in Poland during the war. (Image courtesy of


It is impossible that all of this hateful, toxic, deadly energy would have disappeared in the last 70 years. These past two laws show that the Poles hate the Jews now just as much as they did back then. 

And if you happen to be Polish and like Jews, Mazal Tov! You've obviously got some sort of genetic defect that happened to keep you in the human race. 

I have these words for the Polish government and all those who still hate the Jews underneath their quickly disappearing fake smiles: one day, very soon, you will suffer the way you have made the Jews suffer. You will see that you were controlled, brainwashed, destroyed by your own hate, and it will be too late to do anything about it.

To the Jews that have suffered the loss of family members in the Holocaust, or from any anti-Semitic event, I can't tell you enough how amazing you are. Every day that you pray, put on tefilin, or do anything that relates to G-d, know that you are a walking kiddush Hashem (sanctification of G-d's name.) 

One day, very soon, we will see all of the evil in the world be destroyed, and we will get to live in a world where the good is real and people let each other have the parking spot that they're fighting over. 

I know, I should stop hallucinating. 

Have an anti-Semitic-Polish-free day!


p.s.- Do not write me that I have no emuna, please. Obviously Hashem did what He did for His own reasons, and He decided to make the Polish and Germans (and whomever else) His messengers. But remember this: Hashem doesn't make someone a messenger of evil unless they deserve to be.

That was one good column; keep up the good work1

One thing to remember is that laws like these may be aimed at Moslems more than Jews. A law that bans shechitah also bans halal. A law that bans brit milah also bans the Islamic version. A law that bans shariah courts will also ban a beth-din. Read anti-Islamic sites and you will come across things--some of them written by Jews!-- that merely recycle propaganda from before WWII that was aimed at Jews.

Which is why we Jews must oppose such laws, no matter how much love [/sarcasm] Moslems have for Jews.

i love what you wrote in your p.s. is it yours or quote - i just want to use it in a dvar torah pls let me know

Racheli, I'm very proud of you for this passionate and courageous post. It hits very close to home. Like your father, may Hashem bless him, my mother made it out of Poland alive, but before she did, the little Polish girls in her class turned her into a live pin cushion. I wrote the story on Breslev Israel. The Poles were Antisemites before the Germans knew what the word meant. Don't worry - Hashem has a great memory; as Moshiach comes closer, Hashem will be calling in all the markers from our oppressors, past and present. Bsorot tovot - may way hear good tidings, amen!


very good post! but why can we find kosher meat or yellow cheese at the supermarket in israel coming from poland? we should not buy it! of course the poles were even worse than the germans thats why the nazis built most of the death camps in poland they knew their could achieve their horrendous goals easilly


Anne, I'm wondering the same thing! We don't have enough cows here? I agree with you 100%! Thanks for writing in!


Elena, I came up with that! You're welcome to use it! Just make sure to put $5 in my PayPal account... ;))


Jeffrey, I disagree. The world, especially Europe, is having a love affair withe the Muslims. Just look around - everything is about Muslim empowerment and giving moral support to an "ethical, oppressed people who just want to do the right thing." I don't think the Muslim issue has anything at all to do with it. Thanks for writing in!


Thanks so much, DS! Thanks for writing in!


There is a saying
What do you expect from a pig except for a grunt
It's the same for the rest of Europe. In fact to take it a step further look at the UN vote on Jerusalem. Nothing changes.


David, you're 100% correct!


Last comment cynic that I am.
Yesterday we had a shooting at a public school. Sad. All media reporting on the tragedy. Yet when Jews in Israel are targeted ...WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE???? Oh I forgot when it is us well we know.


Don't worry, David, the outrage is coming. Stay tuned...
