The Tam Institute for Jewish Studies at Emory University is bringing to Atlanta the scholar and author Jan T. Gross, whose book Neighbors (2001) raised awareness of the role played by Poles in the murder of Polish Jews during the Holocaust. Gross is a leading proponent of the idea that Poland can find national honor in a truthful interrogation of its past. Now, 20 years after the publication of his book, that idea is being challenged by a nationalist Polish government that has threatened to prosecute Gross for his claim that Poles killed more Jews than Germans did during World War II. In his Emory lecture, Prof. Gross will argue that the Holocaust must be understood as a central event in the national history of Poland.
