    Sorry to hear about your post war experiences and yes, it was a disgrace. There is some work done about incidents you describe by some historians. You have to agree however that there was not "an open season" to hunt Jews as some people claim. There was Police (milicja), Army, UB etc. and criminals (in this case hard anti-Semites) were punished for murder. Look at murderess in Kielce case. Until 1968 Jews who despite anti-Semitism opted to stay put, lived in Poland with no problems. You know our history, Poland was a very chaotic place right after the war, freshly taken over by the communists, with civil war going on. Unfortunately Jews had its role in establishing communist system in Poland which only gave more reasons for anti-Semites to hate Jews and "take action". I always felt sorry for innocent people who survived the Holocaust, had nothing to do with communism and still suffered from the hands of anti-Semites in post war Poland. That had to be really painful.
