Gross has been completely discredited a long time ago but the author chooses to ignore it and treats Gross’s revelations like a holy scripture - as evidenced by the quotation of the number of victims which was about 200, not 1600. More importantly than numbers and other “mistakes”, the events of Jedwabne were completely unrepresentative of the situation in Poland. Unlike in other occupied countries, Poland did not have a collaboration government; there were no Polish SS units or concentration camp cards. As a matter of fact, the Poles were subjected to the same extermination policies as the Jews. Insisting on this one unrepresentative example while ignoring the whole picture is absolutely dishonest both to the Poles and the readers of this otherwise esteemed newspaper.
