The nasty flaw that Mr. Ivor Davies displays is omission. Jew hatred in Poland started before WWI, beginning in force in about 1880, according to Ms. Joanna B. Michlic, p 67. Polish nationalism, like that of other European countries, imbibed Jew baiting as founding doctrine, nolens volens. For To Mr. Dmowski in 1914 “the major tragedies and the biggest mistakes of the nineteenth century were the program of the cultural assimilation of Jews advocated in the post-1864 period & the decision of Count Aleksander Wilopolski, conservative head of the Polish administration, to grant Jews civic rights.” Yes, there are extraordinary Poles, & always have been. But you cannot, as Mr. Ivor Davies does, ignore the reality of Polish Jew hatred.
