The monsters of Jedwabne

The film is called AFTERMATH. The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER is reporting about the film today.. It perhaps may be one of the most important movies ever made, and since it is about actual events that some have chosen to forget, will be controversial too..
It details some horrible series of events that happened on July 10 1941.. It premiers in the United States this week.. 
If you want to know how controversial this movie may be, consider just the opening paragraph of the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER story:
On July 10, 1941, half the residents of Jedwabne, a Polish village 85 miles northeast of Warsaw, murdered the other half. The mob, led by the mayor, were Catholics; their 1,600 victims were Jewish, slaughtered over several nightmarish hours with bats, knives, rifles and other improvised weapons. Those who survived the massacre were then rounded up in a barn donated by a local farmer, which was then set ablaze. A plaque erected at the site blamed Nazis for the massacre, but, in fact, Nazis had only authorized it. Locals walked by the plaque for half a century, knowing the truth, but saying nothing 
The story of Jedwabne is not the typical one taught in American high schools. As a matter of fact, most people may not even know of the dreadful story.. They will this week, at least those who hear of the movie.. 

In 2001, a book called NEIGHBORS explores the death of the 1,600 people.. While I never read it, this may be as good a time as any to reflect on history that mostly has gone unnoticed in the United States.
God fearing Catholics..armed with weapons of little destruction, killed their neighbors ... 

One part of the story, also that may come as a surprise to those who are not aware, the Poles actually asked their new rulers, the Nazis, if it was permitted they kill the Jews. When they got the greenlight, they went overboard--so much so that the Nazis actually told the Poles to keep one family of Jews from every profession.. the Poles said no thanks, as they continued their bloody rampage..



Those resources and information sources are set to increase with the movie AFTERMATH.



This movie is important to understand, watch..and ponder.
Like the MONSTERS OF MULLBERRY STREET of fiction, this movie based on reality can teach a lesson. A lesson that, as sadly timeless as it may be, atrocities can happen where and when you least expect them...

The death of the great tax exempt church..

The blue-haired bakers who love the block parties are dying away...

The truth--with all its sordid details of abusive priests, sex rings, and pedophilia--all now out.

A long-awaited state grand jury report into sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses, including Pittsburgh and Greensburg, has finally been released. “Today, the most comprehensive report on child sexual abuse within the church ever produced in our country was released,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said. “Pennsylvanians can finally learn the extent of sexual abuse in these dioceses. For the first time, we can all begin to understand the systematic cover up by church leaders that followed. The abuse scarred every diocese. The cover up was sophisticated. The church protected the institution at all costs.”


The report begins with the followi…

It's over. Print dies: September VOGUE does not matter

It was once the biggest print magazine of the year..
They were the days..

NOW THIS, AS REPORTED BY Alexandra Steigrad:

Days before the issue hit newsstands, usually in early August, executives from Vogue, InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Glamour and W would brag about the thickness of their telephone book-sized glossies. They’d boast of the “thud” the issues made when dropped on a coffee table. The louder the thud, the more powerful the magazine.
Now that thud is more of a whimper.
“The September issue means nothing anymore,” said Sam Shahid, founder of branding, advertising and design agency Shahid & Company. “You used to hold that magazine in your hand. It takes you to a place — that’s what a magazine used to do. Now they are all doing the same thing. There’s no imagination there. It’s just pure product, it’s pleasing the advertiser.”
Shahid says a lack of funds at publishers, due to a decline in print circulation and ad revenue in the digital age, has led to a crazy scramble to attr…
