Poland: Christian youth movement teaching blood libels

A game spreading an antisemitic story about sacramental bread desecration was banned by Poznan’s Archbishop. It was found that two churches in Poznan are spreading antisemitic story according to which Jews desecrated the sacramental bread in 1399. To this day, frescos in these churches present this event that has no historical evidence.

The Church of the Holy heart of Jesus (Najświętszego Serca Jezusa) in Zydowska Street, has a well in which, according to the story, Jews sunk sacramental bread. Some people believe that water flows from the well has healing power.

 Recently, those two churches become stops in a municipal children's game which was conducted by a religious youth movement. The game aroused opposition from Zbigniew Fakola from the organization "the town of Poznan." He wrote an open letter which was posted on the media.
