Officials in a Slovak town apologized to Jewish inhabitants for an anti-Jewish pogrom in September 1945. The meeting was attended by more than 50 former Jewish inhabitants of Topolcany, which has a population of approximately 15,000. Of the 3,000 Jews in the town before the war, 10 percent survived the Holocaust and returned from concentration camps to face the anti-Semitic wrath of their neighbors.
