On July 4, 1946, in Kielce, Poland, soldiers, police officers and towns people killed 42 Jews and injured 40 of their Jewish neighbors, survivors of the Holocaust. This pogrom was all but lost from history. Journalist Piotr Piwowaczyk, who grew up in Kielce never heard of this event until well into adulthood, years after he had left Poland. He returns to his childhood home, searching for answers, confronting his own familys complicity in the violence. In an era with rising anti-Semitism, this film is extremely relevant today in revealing and confronting the legacy of this form of hatred in Europe and around the world. Directed by documentary filmmaker Jerzy Sladkowski. Tickets are free, reservations suggested.
