Seventy years after dozens of Polish Holocaust survivors were bludgeoned to death in the Kielce Pogrom, psychologist Bogdan Bialek is intent on reconciling Poles and Jews.For years, the 61-year-old Catholic has organized annual memorial marches in Kielce, a city of 200,000 people 150 kilometers (93 miles) south of the capital Warsaw.At least 42 Jews were killed and over 40 injured in the worst anti-Semitic attack in postwar Poland, according to the Washington-based United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.The pogrom went down as one of the darkest moments in the thousand-year-long history of Polish Jews.A formal Polish inquiry put the Jewish death toll at 37, with other victims including three non-Jewish Poles and two people killed during a robbery.After the pogrom, tens of thousands of Jews left the country for good.
