 On 4 July 1946 a rumour that an eight-year-old boy had been abducted by Jews and was to be subjected to ritual murder triggered a series of assaults against the Jewish residents of Kielce, southern Poland.

 Just months after the official end of the Second World War, 42 people perished in the massacre, and the crime prompted thousands of Jews who had survived the war to emigrate.

 This Sunday, on the anniversary, a Memorial March was organized in Kielce, starting from the Menora monument, passing by the old Synagogue building, the Righteous Among Nations memorial, to end at the tenement house at Planty street which had been the focus of the pogrom. 

 Flowers were laid at the commemorative plaque on the wall of the building. The events were attended by Deputy Minister for Culture, National Heritage and Sport Jarosław Sellin, who also toured the exhibition dedicated to the victims of the Kielce pogrom.
