"Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community of Jedwabne, Poland"
Poland was one site of the Holocaust in which Jews and non-Jews had lived side-by-side for centuries, their communities closely interwoven even as they maintained their distinctive traditions. Jan Gross, Professor of History at Princeton University, is the author of the acclaimed book, Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community of Jedwabne, Poland (2002). In his talk Professor Gross will describe the reaction his book elicited after its publication in Poland, as well as his more recent research on this important topic.
