The Kishinev Pogrom of 1903

Summary of the Pogrom

The pogrom was triggered by the murder of a boy in the nearby town of Dubossary. Anti-Semitic newspapers accused Jews of the crime, writing that they had done it for a ritual purpose. During the pogrom, 49 people were killed, over 500 injured and some 1.5 thousand Jewish houses and shops were plundered and ruined.
