The massacre of hundreds of Jews by residents of the small Polish town of Jedwabne in 1941 remained secret for 60 years after the war; it was an atrocity that attested to the level of anti-Semitism in Poland at the time. In this award-winning book, Anna Bikont tells the story of the massacre through the testimony of survivors, but also chronicles her own quest to uncover the truth, and looks at how the town has faced up to its past.

About the Author:

Anna Bikont is a journalist for Gazeta Wyborcza,one of Poland's largest and most celebrated newspapers, which she helped found in 1989. For her articles on the crimes of Jedwabne and Radzilow, she was honored in 2001 with Poland's most prestigious award in journalism, the Press Prize. In 2008 and 2009, Bikont was a Cullman Fellow of the New York Public Library.

Review:

"An astonishing act of investigation and documentation. In the face of lies, denial and massive indifference, Bikont has established exactly what happened ... The result is a terrifying and necessary book, unsparing in its detail, but deeply heartening as an act of historical reclamation." * Julian Barnes * "Scrupulously objective and profoundly personal." * Kate Atkinson, Books of the Year, Wall Street Journal * "A powerful and important study of the poisonous effects of racism and hatred within a community." * Guardian * "A masterpiece of historical journalism ... A must read for anyone interested in the Holocaust and its aftermath." * Jan T. Gross * "A hauntingly plausible contemporary history, tactfully delivering truths that we might all do well to contemplate." * Timothy Snyder, author of Black Earth *

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. On 10 July 1941 a horrifying crime was committed in the small Polish town of Jedwadbne. Early in the afternoon, the town s Jewish population - hundreds of men, women and children - were ordered out of their homes, and marched into the town square. By the end of the day most would be dead. It was a massacre on a shocking scale, and one that was widely condemned. But only a few people were brought to justice for their part in the atrocity. The truth of what actually happened on that day was to be suppressed for more than sixty years. Part history, part memoir, part investigation, The Crime and the Silence is an award-winning journalist s account of the events of that day: both the story of a massacre told through oral histories of survivors and witnesses, and a portrait of a Polish town coming to terms with its dark past. Including the perspectives of both heroes and perpetrators, Anna Bikont chronicles the sources of the hatred that exploded against Jews and asks what myths grow on hidden memories, what destruction they cause, and what happens to a society that refuses to accept a horrific truth. Provocative, profoundly moving and ingeniously structured, The Crime and the Silence is a monumental work of non-fiction, and a vital contribution to Holocaust literature.
