Poland’s justice minister said he is postponing the exhumation of the remains of up to 1,600 Jewish victims of a 1941 massacre until he can confer with Jewish religious leaders. The exhumation had been requested by the National Remembrance Institute, a government body investigating the massacre in the Polish town of Jedwabne, but some Jewish groups say disturbing the dead violates Jewish religious belief.
