Warsaw Rabbi Michael Schudrich watched as workers removed soil from a mass grave of Jews massacred nearly 60 years ago by their Polish neighbors. Poland’s Jewish community reluctantly accepted the government’s decision to exhume the bodies in the northeastern town of Jedwabne as part of an inquiry into the atrocity. Schudrich said he believed the actual exhumations would not begin until Wednesday, after the Jewish holiday of Shavuot.
