This chapter compares the process of memorialization in the towns of Jedwabne and Wizna. It describes Jedwabne, where the infamous massacre of Jews by their Polish neighbours in 1941 took place, while Wizna is known as the site of a battle in September 1939 in which 650 Polish soldiers died defending the line of defence fortifications in the area. It also points out the existence of a monument to the Jewish victims of the massacre in Jedwabne, which official and popular mythology attributed solely to German forces. The chapter mentions the monument built to 180 local victims of Nazi and Soviet aggression that attracted renewed local attention a decade after the conflict over the site of a new memorial to the murdered Jews of Jedwabne broke out. It discusses how the residents of Wizna have erected several memorials during the last twenty-five years of communist rule.
