Let me try one more time...
Jedwabne and pre-war pogroms were criminal acts. I got it.
What nobody here is saying is what would motivate the criminals to commit those crimes - IN THEIR OWN WORDS!!!!
I don't want to read any more interpretations, thoughts, and assumptions!!!!! Or about Jesus!!!!
It's a strong example of "cultural cringe" that so many in Poland feel they do.
Oh, cut that crap out. I am not going to cringe about what I didn't do. Just as we are told not to blame post-war Germans for the crimes of their fathers.
