Mr. Gross talked about his book, Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland, published by Princeton University Press. The book is about a small Polish town during early WWII, where half of the population in one day murdered the other half of the town, a 1,600-member Jewish community. Only seven Jews survived the massacre. Professor Gross, a Polish Jew, discussed both his use of eyewitness accounts to re-tell the story, as well as Jewish-Polish relations. After his remarks he answered questions from members of the audience. close
