The Jedwabne pogrom (pronounced [jɛdˈvabnɛ]) was a massacre of at least 300 Polish Jews in German occupied Poland in July 1941. A treason and murder trial was launched by Poland's communist regime in 1949, which was later condemned as a miscarriage of justice.[1] After a fresh investigation concluded in 2004, the Polish Institute of National Remembrance stated the crime was committed by a mob of Polish Gentiles in the presence of Nazi German Ordnungspolizei. The involvement of German paramilitary forces of the SS and Gestapo remains the subject of debate, especially the role of Nazi German Einsatzgruppe Zichenau-Schroettersburg.[2][3][4][5][6][7] According to some later commentators, many people were shocked by the findings, which contrast with the rescue of Jews by Poles during the Holocaust.[8][9][10]
