Event Polish Debates about Exhumation in Jedwabne

Friday, June 2, 2017 - 12:00 to 13:15
Encina Hall West, Room 219

Jedwabne has turned into Poland's “national problem." After a partial exhumation of the mass graves in 2001, a full exhumation has been proposed in 2016 in order to discover the true identity of the perpetrators, how many people died, and how. This talk presents various points of view on this matter. In fact, it is not the victims that are at the center of attention but their depersonalized remains, which have come to be treated as corpus delicti.
