“The executioners next door,” by Jan Tomasz Gross is a book that covers a case of extermination that took place in Poland in 1941 at Polish hands. The book was published in Italy in 2002, and reprinted in 2003. Since then, it has disappeared. Given the political winds blowing in Poland, it would be appropriate to reprint it, just to understand one of the sources of today’s Poland. For us, not for the Poles; as they already know it.
