Book on Polish Jews' WWII ordeal touches raw nerve

"Golden Harvest" by Jan Tomasz Gross and his wife Irena Grudzinska-Gross will not be published until March 10, but leaked copies have stirred up heated debate in Poland and forced the book's publisher to defend the book and its findings. (Reuters)
