Abstract:

Describes riots on 9 March 1936 in Przytyk, during which one Pole and two Jews were killed. Presents the historical background of the conflict, the trial after the riots, and echoes of the events in Poland and abroad. Denies that there was a pogrom, arguing that the riots were the result of a very complicated relationship between Poles and Jews in a period of harsh economic crisis. States that there is no proof that the riots were provoked by Endecja members. Agrees that nationalistic propaganda and a boycott led by Endecja contributed to the worsening of the atmosphere in the town. Accuses Jewish self-defense groups, which he considers illegal, of contributing to the peasants' "revenge" during the riots and the murder of a Jewish couple. Concludes that the economic crisis in interwar Poland was a main factor in tensions that sometimes led to riots. States that both Polish and Jewish historiography present events subjectively and use them in their ideological struggle. Pp. 141-367 contain documents concerning the riots, including court and police reports, witnesses' accounts, parliamentary proceedings, and press commentaries.
