Poles and Jews: Troubled Neighbours?

Is reconciliation between Poles and Jews possible? Revisiting both the brutal Jedwabne pogrom of 1941 and stories of peaceful neighbourly coexistence, this question was addressed by Dorota Glowacka and Joanna Zylinska, editors of Imaginary Neighbors: Mediating Polish-Jewish Relations after the Holocaust. The discussion was chaired by Anne Karpf.
