This chapter provides selective reviews of some articles that appeared in Biuletyn Żydowskiego Instytutu Historycznego (BŻIH), the quarterly journal of the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw. It looks at the articles published between 1993 and 1997 in particular. The chapter first examines the persistence of antisemitic and other ethnic stereotypes in Europe and particularly in Poland. It then turns to the history of the ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ in Poland and of how Polish communism gradually assimilated the ‘teachings’ of this slander. From there, the chapter explores other topics, including Polish Radio, the National Democratic Party (the Endecja), illegal emigration, journalism, pogroms, German responsibility for the Holocaust, Jewish foreign relations, and Jewish agriculture. The chapter's conclusion is devoted to an examination of how Jewish topics, from communal and religious life in medieval Poland to the Holocaust, are presented in elementary and secondary school textbooks.

Keywords:   Biuletyn Żydowskiego Instytutu Historycznego, BŻIH, Jewish journalism, Jewish Historical Institute, antisemitism, Poland, Holocaust, Jewish topics, school textbooks
