The Polish debate around Jan Tomasz Gross' 'Fear' took place at the beginning of 2008. The book relates to the question of Polish anti-Semitism after Word War II, and by the same token, it identifies the Polish self-image of a nation of victims as the source of the problem. The analysis of the debate around 'Fear' focuses on analogies with the German debate on Daniel Goldhagen's 'Hitler's Willing Executioners' from 1996; meta-discursive aspects of the Polish debate (concerning the book and the debate itself rather than historical events); some features of debate's politicization and mediatization; the problematic 'ethnization' of the debate; polarization of the standpoints and the lack of 'intermediary work' between standpoints. The conclusions lead to the postulation of an 'intermediary' discourse analysis.
