The Massacre of the Jews of Poland

In the 17th century, Poland was home to one third of the world’s Jewish population, and was considered the center of Jewish life. All that was about to come to a terrible end.

A very fair and balanced presentation. If only people could pursue their aspirations without blaming the Jews!

There is still so much denial of the fact all over europe. Especially in eastern Europe!

The comeback is supernatural.

One does not come back from witnessing this horror without the hand of Heaven.

I read that Khmelnytsky's WIFE had been kidnapped by the Poles &

this was despite him being an officer in the Polish army. His allies were freed serfs, freed prisoners, Cossacks & also Tartars, who kept switching sides between Poles & Cossacks.
I frequently contemplate would could have changed history & it could all go back to the kidnapping of his wife by one or two Poles.
