This chapter discusses the book My z Jedwabnego (We from Jedwabne) by Anna Bikont, which recorded what has occurred in the town and documented the very experience of Jedwabne. The chapter details the peace that reigned again in Jedwabne three years after the well-publicized memorial service in July 2001 on the sixtieth anniversary of the massacre. It also delves into the debate on Jedwabne as it constitutes the first authentic link to that fragment of history of the free Poland that by foreign designs ended in September 1939, and then again in 1945. The chapter analyzes how the Jedwabne debate hints directly at the interrupted discussion about the shape of Polish national unity, in which the concepts of the uniform, Catholic, and nationalist 'backwoods' and the multinational 'Judeopolonia' kept clashing. It considers the Church as the Łomza district's main saboteur of the Piłsudski idea of a diverse national community next to the extremists and nationalists.
