Some more information on Jedwabne.

Many of you have already seen the posting about the book "Neighbors"
by Jan Gross (to be published in April) which is being sold at the
JewishGen Mall and about the extract >from the book that appears in
the March 12th edition of the New Yorker magazine.

Many of you may not be aware, however, that the article quotes >from
the yizkor book on Jewabne, referring to it as a memorial book. The
translation >from the yizkor book has been online at since 1998 and
the massacre of the Jewish population of Jedwabne is described in the
yizkor book. On that site you will also find the English translation
of an important Polish newspaper article written last year, with an
introduction by Morlan Ty Rogers, the project coordinator for the
yizkor book translation. See
