One summer day in 1941, half of the Polish town of Jedwabne murdered the other half, 1,600 men, women, and children, all but seven of the town's Jews. Neighbors tells their story. This is a shocking, brutal story that has never before been told. It is the most important study of Polish-Jewish relations to be published in decades and should become a classic of Holocaust literature. Jan Gross pieces together eyewitness accounts and other evidence into an engulfing reconstruction of the horrific July day remembered well by locals but forgotten by history. His investigation reads like a detective story, and its unfolding yields wider truths about Jewish-Polish relations, the Holocaust, and human responses to occupation and totalitarianism. It is a story of surprises: The newly occupying German army did not compel the massacre, and Jedwabne's Jews and Christians had previously enjoyed cordial relations. After the war, the nearby family who saved Jedwabne's surviving Jews was derided and driven from the area. The single Jew offered mercy by the town declined it. Most arresting is the sinking realization that Jedwabne's Jews were clubbed, drowned, gutted, and burned not by faceless Nazis, but by people whose features and names they knew well: their former schoolmates and those who sold them food, bought their milk, and chatted with them in the street. As much as such a question can ever be answered, Neighbors tells us why. In many ways, this is a simple book. It is easy to read in a single sitting, and hard not to. But its simplicity is deceptive. Gross's new and persuasive answers to vexed questions rewrite the history of twentieth-century Poland. This book proves, finally, that the fates of Poles and Jews during World War II can be comprehended only together.… (mer)

In un campo nei pressi di Jedwabne, una città del nordest della Polonia, c'è una targa che ricorda l'uccisione di 1.600 ebrei per mano della Gestapo e della polizia tedesca. Solo dopo sessant'anni si è scoperto invece che la targa racconta una parziale verità. ... (fonte: Google Books)

This short book combines excellent documentation with important questions and observations about the meaning and implications of the events described. Despite the storm of controversy surrounding the book’s publication, this is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand what happened in Eastern Europe under Nazi occupation, and the legacy of those times. I’ll call it as I see it: a modern classic. ( )

We like to think about the atrocities of World War II as things perpetuated by Hitler, by Nazis, by Germans, by other. It's a comfortable idea that the Holocaust was perpetuated by special monsters. If special monsters did it all, then the world is a safer place because those monsters are gone.

Unfortunately, it's not true. Six million Jews were victims of genocide. An additional five million non-Jews were murdered for their religion, race, political affiliation, sexuality, etc. There are not enough special monsters to murder, torture, maim, and brutalize eleven million people. And those numbers don't even count the folks who survived.

Neighbors looks at an event in one town. An event carried out by regular people on their neighbors, on people they knew, on people they had known their whole lives, on people they allowed themselves to "other".

Regular people participated in the Holocaust. Regular people bear the burden of these murders. Regular people must participate for atrocities to happen because there are not enough monsters in the world to do it alone. Neighbors is frightening because it demands that we look to ourselves and ask if we could be those people. ( )

Breve (muy breve, casi diria que escaso) relato de los terribles acontecimientos sucedidos en este pueblo polaco en 1941 cuando el ejército alemán invadió la parte de Polonia ocupada por el Ejército Rojo y que aprovecharon los habitantes para masacrar a sus vecinos judíos. ( )
