Bogdan’s Journey is a heartbreaking account of the pogrom that took place in the town of Kielce, Poland in July 1946. 40 Holocaust survivors were murdered and more than 80 injured by townspeople who used a false rumour accusing the Jews of kidnapping a Polish boy to incite violence. Nearly 70 years after the pogrom, Bogdan Bialek, a Christian resident of Kielce, takes it upon himself to bring his fellow residents to acknowledge and commemorate the atrocity.
