HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, OCTOBER 5, 2018 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 or Will it ever end? (Probably, it will NEVER end!) I read this today and pass it on to you. (Why should I be the only one depressed?): "The Israeli Journal of Foreign Affairs, a publication of the Israel Council on For- eign Relations, has released a penetrating study revealing the extent of the resurgence of anti-Semitic discourse in Poland in the wake of its controversial Holocaust Law. (The law as it stands now still stifles any real discussion of the extent to which local Poles were complicit in the annihilation of their Jewish neighbors during the German Dr. Rafal Pankowski occupation. Poles are understandably upsetwhen Nazi German annihilation and concentration camps are referred to as Polish simply due to their location on German occupied Polish soil, but it was an egregious mistake to criminalize those who do so, within the framework of a law that in its essence threatens Poland's good name and international standing.) Dr. Rafal Pankowski, a sociology professor at Warsaw's Collegium Civitas, explores the disturbing revival of anti- Semitism in that country, identifying dozens of examples of such expressions: The surge of hostility to Jews and the Jewish State in the Polish media and politics in early 2018 took many observers by surprise. It was also a great shock because for many years, bilateral relations between Poland and Israel had been especially cordial and fruitful. 'Unlike other post-Communist countries in Central and Eastern Europe, Poland has made significant progress in recognizing and researching the inconvenient truths about its own legacy of anti-Semitism. In the wake of the new legislation, however, that progress has been seriously hampered and the findings of courageous, pioneering historians, and even their patriotism, has been called into question' Pankowski says. Pankowski further notes that while in recent years anti- Jewish discourse was mainly confined to extreme quarters, it has now found a prominent place in mainstream media, especially in state controlled news outlets. 'The surge in radical nationalist discourse reflects a deeper crisis of liberal, democratic, and humanistic values--in Poland and elsewhere in post Communist Europe, as well as in the wider world.'" Remembering Jewish history On Sept. 5th 1972, Palestinian terrorist group Black Septem- ~/~r~murdered 11 Israeli athletes and a German police officer ; :~i~ Summer Olympic Games in Munich, West Germany. '~ (F~credibly, despite the massacre, the games went on as scheduled!) Such a surprise! While watching the Emmy Awards show on television the other night, I was surprised (and delighted) to see GLENN WEISS called up as Emmy winner for Best Director for a variety special. After he received the award, he said to his girlfriend, JAN SWENDSEN (who was seated in the audience) "You wonder why I don't call you my girlfriend? Because I want to A marriage proposal for all the world to see. call you my wife." She was then called up on stage and Glenn went down on one knee, presenting her with his mother's ring! As delightfu]as this was to view, you are probably wondering why I mentionit in my column. I'll tell you! Glenn is a ousin to our very own GIL DOMBROWSKY, a member of omHeritage staff! MAZEL TOV!

One for the road Ruth had just stepped out of the shower when she heard her doorbell ring. "Who is it?" she shouted downstairs. "It's the blind man," came the reply. Ruth decided it didn't matter if she opened the door without any clothes on because the man was blind. In fact she thought it would be a rather daring thing to do. So she opened the door wide and he said, "It's Macy's De- partment Store, downtown Orlando. Where do you want me to put these blinds?" (Oy Gevalt! ]fit were me it wouldn't have mattered. Gravity has pulled everJthing down into one lump!) EWISH NEWS can be purchased at the following locations: ORANGE COUNTY JCC, 851 N.
