Attempts to answer a perplexing question: How was anti-Semitism possible in Poland after World War II? At the center of Gross's investigation is a detailed reconstruction of the Kielce pogrom and the reactions it evoked in various milieus of Polish society. Includes an Index. "... This brilliant, courageous book about Poles and Jews is deeply disturbing: It should be required reading for anyone concerned about the European past -- and our common future." -- Tony Judt, director of the Remarque Institute at New York University and author of Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945
