C-15 describes the atrocities committed in Jedwabne : on July 10, 1941. According to the NYTimes, Gilbert places Jedwabne in : Lithuania. Not Gilbert, but John Gross, the NYTimes reviewer placed Jedwabne in Lithuania. Why?, because Gilbert in the very same paragraph described both, the first Ponary execution of 100 Jews (July 8) and Jedwabne (July 10). Gilbert (page 170):" In the twelve days following July 8, as many as five thousand Vilna Jews were murdered ...". And about Jedwabne. Gilbert (page 170):" In the village of Jedwabne, all sixteen hundred Jews were driven into the market place by the SS, tortured for several hours, then driven into a barn and burned alive". : However, in the "Atlas of the Holocaust" which I believe was also : edited by Gilbert, Jedwabne is properly placed in Poland, 20 : kilometers northeast of Lomza. In these accounts, however, it is : mistakenly claimed that German troops killed the 1,600 Jews. For the : truth, consult "Jedwabne- History and Memorial Book", Julius L. Baker and : Jacob L. Baker, Jerusalem and New York 1980. In this book are numerous : testimonials that the 1,600 Jews were killed by their non-Jewish : fellow townspeople. So, as you claim - in 1980 Baker&Baker published the Jedwabne "truth" and, as you claim - Gilbert in 1982 in the "Atlas of the Holocaust" made a Jedwabne "mistake". Then four years later (!) - in spite of 1980 (!) Baker&Baker book with "numerous testimonials" - in 1986 in "The Holocaust" Gilbert again continually (and wrongly(???) accuses German's SS. Well, hope this is not a neo-nazi attempt to improve the image of the SS.

Your bias is blatently obvious since you immediately consider my post outrageous even though you admittedly don't have any evidence one way or the other. You can read all about it in the book "Yedwabne - History and Memorial" published in 1980 by J. Baker and available at the New York Public Library, the Library of Congress, YIVO and a number of other libraries. As far as "evidence" on "your" side, I'll save you the trouble of trying to find it. In 1985, I personally saw a small monument which was erected during the communist era claiming that "Nazi troops burned 1600 Jews". Call this evidence if you like but I would be extremely suspicious of historical claims made by the former communist government.
