On 10 July, 1941, the Jewish population of Jedwabne, Poland, were rounded up and murdered. Over a thousand Jews were forced into a nearby barn which was doused with petrol and set on fire. Music was played to drown out their screams. For over 60 years, the Nazis were blamed for this pogrom. But new evidence proves residents carried out the massacre. This single revelation — that ordinary Poles willingly participated in the Shaoh — has proved the most shattering revelation confronting Polish society since the fall of communism. It further complicates our understanding of the Holocaust. This documentary is a compelling and personal film exploring the legacy of this massacre.
