A groundbreaking moment in the discourse of the labour movement and a classic text which revolutionised social history. Bernstein uncovers a period when industrial trade unionism, working-class power and socialism became a rallying cry for millions of workers; from fields, mills, mines and factories. This is the second instalment of Bernstein's critically acclaimed trilogy on the American labour movement which charts how the New Deal and labour unions preserved democracy and capitalism at a time when the survival of both was unclear.
Kenneth Baker, former Conservative Party Chairman, reveals Mrs Thatcher's strengths and weaknesses, and charts the mixture of accident, ambition and faulty judgement which led to her decline. Drawing on his own diaries, Baker also provides an insider's view of this period.
In the Introduction, I briefly examined the war between born again Poland in 1918 after over 120 years of foreign oppression and the Bolshevik/Communist Russia in 1920. This was the first Bolshevik/Communist Russian Expansionist War. The Bolsheviks/Communists under the leadership of Lenin started this war, hoping for quick victory over a very weak Poland, just starting the unifying process after long oppression. Poland was partitioned by Germany, Russia, and the Austro-Hungarian Empire by the end of the eighteenth century. The goal of Lenin and his horde of Communist disciples, as well as of the Communist international banditry, was to conquer Poland. In addition, very soon afterward, they pushed into Germany, who was defeated in WWI and struggling economically with no army and very poor people. German Communists were trying to fully exploit this situation and start a revolution immediately after Poland was defeated and opened the door to Western Europe for Communist conquest. Unfortunately for Lenin, the mass murderer and his Communist Red Army hordes, it was no victory. They were defeated at Warsaw, and they retreated rapidly northeast and a few months later, they signed the Peace Treaty in Riga, Latvia. Poland saved the Western civilization and Christianity in 1920 and stopped the spread of Communism to Western Europe. In the next part, WWII, I described the start of the war by the Germans invading Poland from the west, north, and south. In addition, sixteen days later, the Communist Soviet Union invaded from the east according to the pact between Hitler and Stalin, made in August of 1939. The Germans were taking western Poland. The Communist Soviet Union was taking Eastern Poland as two bandits, Hitler and Stalin, divided the loot and started plundering Poland. Germany and the Communist Soviet Union were equal aggressors, and they were equally responsible for starting WWII. Our family lived in western Poland, which was occupied by Germans. It was a brutal occupation. The Germans started building the concentration camps, like Auschwitz and others; however, for the first two years of occupation, all the prisoners were Polish Christians. From about the middle of 1942 to Auschwitz, Polish Jews started coming, and shortly after, Jews from other European countries occupied by Germans also arrived. The Germans committed horrendous crimes against the Polish Christians and Polish Jews under their occupation. The daily life in western Poland became very difficult and dangerous. The underground resistance army, called Home Army, was growing fast. The goal of the Home Army was to fight German occupants in many different forms. In eastern Poland, occupied by the Communist Soviet Union, the lives of the Polish people were dramatically becoming worse. They were methodically exterminated by Communist Soviets, the worst barbaric savages. The Communist Soviets were also sending Polish people by thousands daily to Siberian gulags, to slave labor. The Germans committed holocaust against Jewish people during WWII as well as holocausts against Polish people. The Communist Soviet Union, by order of Joseph Stalin and his Politburo, committed holocausts against Polish people in eastern Poland. During WWII, Poland had the highest loss of population by percentage of total population, about 25 percent, the highest percentage of any nation in the world. When WWII ended in 1945, Poland was devastated beyond imagination, and the worst part was that the German occupation was exchanged for Communist Soviet Union occupation, which would last for a very long forty-five years. The years 1945–1968, covers the period of establishing Communist control over Poland beginning in 1945 until 1948 by Communists sent to Poland from Moscow. This was a very difficult time, when the Communist Soviets’ NKVD/KGB and the Polish Communist gover
As German Jews in the 1930s, Posner and his family were subject to escalating persecution by the Nazi party. Louis Posner was left to fend for himself at the age of fourteen. He managed to evade the Gestapo in Brussels until he received an "invitation" to join a work camp. What follows is his hazardous life as an Auschwitz prisoner until his liberation in 1945., at age 19. This is a powerful story of one survivor's harrowing tale.
