The difference between this and the Kielce pogrom was that the Kielce pogrom took place AFTER WW2.
I fail to see difference during or after, I would think that after the WWII people were more prone to violence.
And if this isn't clear enough as to why the Kielce incident was so important in the image forming of the European about Poles as being anti semite, then I give up. I cannot make it much clearer.
Well, I understand significance of the Kielce incident for forming image of Poles as being anti-semite in the eyes of the western world.
What I question is the validity of such qualification based on one incident in given circumstances you seems to ignore completely and which I stated before in my previous posts above.
One thing newspapers and public opinion something else historians and professionals.
Perhaps; but they were still Poles.
So, what - Poles or not Poles it make no difference in circumstances I have described.
And the question whether or not this incident was used by the Soviets in order to give Poland a bad name abroad, is not really relevant in this respect.
No, the question is whether or not this incident wasn't orchestrated by Soviet GRU or NKVD, such action, provocation, assassination were done before, during and after WWII - there was nobody better than Soviet secret services.
Who gained from Kielce accident? Soviets!
I didn't describe the events as such, I described the perpetrators. And like I said it were Poles that committed them.
It actually reminded me some move or book about case in court where false witness were nailed by defence lawyer and the line was more or less - you were wrong about time, place, many details, the order of invents, about what happened but about one and only one fact you are certain from the beginning that it was accused who did it !
Don't take me wrong, I don't say you are false but did you for a moment thought that your view of the Kielce incident could be not quite ....as it really happened?
I mean you are so sure....Why?
I'm waiting for materials you promised!
