ART dealers, ANTIQUE dealers, ART industry, INDO-Europeans, TREBLINKA (Concentration camp), OCCUPATION of Poland, 1939-1945, WORLD War II, and WARSAW (Poland) -- History
A substantial number of Jewish art and antiques dealers operated in pre-World War II Warsaw. Particularly respected were the salons of the brothers Bernard and Abe Gutnajer. Virtually everyone in their milieu perished in the Warsaw ghetto or Treblinka. Taking their place were new "Aryan" dealers and a clientele of "new" money. The Warsaw art market under the German occupation experienced a particular growth between the start of the Jewish ghetto's liquidation in mid-1942 and the outbreak of the Warsaw Uprising in August 1944, as "abandoned" property flooded the market. After decades of subsequent turbulent history, researchers can hardly hope to document the provenance of more than a fraction of tens of thousands of surviving works of art and valuable antiques.

CROSS-cultural studies on capitalism, WARSAW (Poland) -- History, and FOREIGN investments
This paper investigates the long-term problems of capital accumulation in the context of centre and periphery and dependency models, the systemic and geoeconomic features of the integration of post-socialist transition countries in the context of dependent market economy (DME) model characterized by high dependency on foreign direct investment channelled by foreign MNCs into the CEE and the restructuring of the centres in Central and Eastern Europe. It argues that the global economic crisis has been exposed the systemic vulnerability of the post-socialist neo-liberal transition model characterized by foreign investment-led growth which is failed to generate domestic capital accumulation and decrease the relative development gap between the ‘old' and ‘new' EU members. We would like to use the principles of geoeconomics in order to analyse the Central and Eastern European region and the role of the Foregin Direct Investment and its special role in financial sector in transformation and the question o f the problem of Central and Eastern European financial centres focusing on the position of Warsaw [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
