An award-winning journalist in her native Poland, Bikont won the European Book Prize in 2011 for this investigation of the cultural and moral reverberations of the 1941 Jedwabne massacre. Building on Jan Gross’s historical account in Neighbors, Bikont chronicles her nation’s public debate over its violent anti-Semitic past and assembles the testimonies of Jedwabne’s witnesses and participants to probe the sources of such chilling hatred.

Richard Reeves spoke about his book, Infamy, at Politics & Prose on Thursday, May 7, 2015.

In his comprehensive history of the internment of Japanese and Japanese-American residents during World War II, Reeves, prize-winning historian, veteran journalist, and currently senior lecturer at the Annenberg School, draws on interviews, correspondence, and troves of private and public papers of some of the 120,000 interned civilians. In telling the stories of the imprisoned, Reeves also recounts those of citizens who objected to the camps, and revises the image of the period’s national leaders who have traditionally been viewed as heroes.
