Poland and the Jews

To the Editor:

Robert S. Wistrich’s superb review of Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community of Jedwabne, Poland by Jan T. Gross [Books in Review, October 2001] touches on the failure of several parties to reveal the truth about what actually happened at Jedwabne, but leaves untouched the following question: if, as I surmise, the relevant documents about the massacre were readily available at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem for a half-century, why did Israeli scholars not do anything with them?
