Polish Film Sparks Holocaust Debate: Poland's Jewish community was almost entirely decimated during the Holocaust. The Nazis murdered 90 percent of the three million Jews there.

A kind of phantom pain was all that remained, the sort experienced by people who've lost a limb. The loss is, to this day, al...
