Bogdan Bialek, a Catholic Pole, launches a crusade to persuade the people of Kielce, Poland, to confront the truth about the darkest moment in their past: Kielce was the site of Europe’s last Jewish pogrom. In the face of long-held animosity in the hearts of his fellow citizens, Bialek, a psychologist, uses education and community organizing to debunk conspiracy theories and cut through the unending debate about how and why it happened. His persistence, commitment, and passion transform Kielce into a place of dialogue and reconciliation.
