I was listening to some of the radio broadcast on NPR for Holocaust remembrance day, Thursday, and one of the survivors mentioned Kielce, as something that happened after liberation. I had never heard of it, so was very surprised to read about how 42 Jews were basically killed in cold blood in Kielce, Poland, in July 1946, a full year after the end of WWII in Europe. They were trying to resettle and restart their lives. Very tragic story.
Rutu Modan’s The Property… I now see it in a new light.
Julia Pirotte was a young Polish-French photographer who had been in the French resistance, and she came upon the scene shortly after the killing had ended. Her photos are in the Yad Vashem archives.
