Sasiedzi, a documentary from Polish Television, Part I and Part II
A televised documentary on the World War II massacre of Jewish villagers by their Polish neighbors. Recent revelations about the 1941 massacre in Jedwabne and nearby communities in northeastern Poland have stunned Poland and devastated the national assumption, nurtured in the communist era, that Poles were always victims and never collaborators in Nazi-era atrocities. In the documentary, Arnold interviews witnesses, participants and survivors of the massacre of an estimated 1,600 Jews in Jedwabne and 800 in Radzilow and other nearby villages.
There will be a short intermission between the two parts.
