The first is a new book, Hunt for the Jews: Betrayal and Murder in German-Occupied Poland, published this October.
Written by Polish historian Jan Grabowski, the son of a Holocaust survivor, a graduate of Warsaw University and currently a history professor at University of Ottawa, it records the massacres of Jews by their neighbors in his native Poland, until now a little-told chapter of Holocaust history.
