Political History

Residents of Jedwabne, Poland, round up Jewish neighbors and other Jews in near-by villages, take them to the town square, and savagely beat them.

All of this occurs on orders from mayor Marian Karolak and local Germany authorities.

Later the Jews are herded into a barn and burned alive when the barn is set on fire. Their remains will be buried in a mass grave outside Jedwabne.

After the war, 22 people will be put on trial for their crimes and 12 will be convicted.
