Criticism that Poland was anti-Semitic is questionable

I was surprised by review of Jan Gross' book in the July 25 issue. As someone who has traveled all over the world, including many times to Poland, I saw no more anti-Semitism in Poland than anywhere else, or much less.

It was a mistake for an objective newspaper like The News Journal to print a twisted version of something that happened over 50 years ago. Poland accepted Jews when other countries in Europe drove them out, which led to the large Jewish population there. This openness should not be forgotten.
