Poland: Church to display blood libel painting as part of international Day of Judaism

A controversial 18-century painting depicting the ritual murder of Christian children by Jews, will be available to viewers in the cathedral of Sandomierz, Poland.

The painting, “Mord Rytualny” or “Ritual Murder,” was painted by Charles de Prevot,

A plaque will be mounted next to the painting, which will inform viewers that the Jews did not actually commit ritual murder, because their faith prohibits it.


The painting will go on display again on Thursday, as the Catholic Church marks its international Day of Judaism.
