Please consult both Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland by Jan T. Gross and the more recent The Towns of Death: Pogroms Against the Jews by Their Neighbors by Mirosław Tryczyk and me (the translat0r). You will find that there was a peripheral German participation in the burning of Jedwabne Jews in a barn. The pogroms were organized and carried out by the Polish neighbors. Similar pogroms in another dozen localities around Jedwabne are described and discussed as well the historical, religious, and political background for the events.
