Just because other sites with other motives use the excerpts I used, doesn't mean that the excerpts themselves are racist at all. These books do exist, do they not? If another website uses the excerpts, that doesn't mean the excerpts are tainted an should be deemed racist.
The excerpts may or may not be tainted (it is often easy to selectively quote and to quote out of context in order to make a text say the exact opposite of what the author wrote). What is telling is that you appear to have been reading texts on such sites. Or is there another reason that you decided to not link to the places where we could read the texts you quoted?
The documentary Stetl, about the history of the town of Bransk, revealed that Polish Gentiles had to receive special permission from the Jewish authorites in Bransk before being allowed to move into the center of that the town.
Really? 'Stetl' [sic] revealed that? Are you sure you are being completely truthful there?
Jews lived in Brańsk (a royal town) from 1560 until the end of the eighteenth century in such small numbers that they were prevented from creating a communal body. This limited settlement was principally a result of the privilege De non tolerandis Iudaeis. Larger Jewish settlements existed in neighbouring villages and in towns owned by the nobility.
According to the administrative division Jews belonged to Jewish Community (kehila) in Tykocin, established in 1522. Because the de non tolerandis Iudaeis privilege was in force in Brańsk, it was not possible for Jews to create their own community. At that time Jews experienced a lot of difficulties in obtaining residence permit to settle in the town. Moreover, if they were lucky to obtain the permit it was without the right to become citizens.
In the second half of the 18th century (1753) a Jewish leaseholder of unknown name from Boćki lived in Brańsk. It is assumed that at that time a group of Jews, among them leaseholders, tanners and paramedics by profession, came to the town. However, the Brańsk community was against Jewish settlement in the town. Therefore a resolution was issued in 1792 by the Bielsk sejmik (assembly of local gentry) where those gathered postulated that Jews should not settle down in royal towns, and that is why most Jews settled in nearby villages which are recorded in written sources
A small town in eastern Poland, south of Białystok. Brańsk was a royal town that was granted city rights under Magdeburg law in the fifteenth century. The privilege de non tolerandis Judaeis barred Jews from settling there, but in 1560 two Jews obtained permission from King Sigismund August to lease mills in the district. The town council granted them permission to reside in Brańsk on a temporary basis. Until the late eighteenth century, the number of Jews never reached more than a dozen.
Brańsk became part of Prussia as a result of the third partition of Poland in 1795. At that point, the town lost its administrative significance and privileges. Jews were allowed to settle there, numbering, by 1799, 7 percent of the population of 1,155 residents; by 1807 they formed 12 percent of the town's total population of 1,303.
Can the reader can be forgiven for thinking that you are not being completely truthful about what the film said?
