Vatican Paper Prints Myth About Jews Draining Blood From Christian Children

Vatican Paper Prints Myth About Jews Draining Blood From Christian Children

Pope Leo XIII
Source: Wikipedia

L'Osservatore Romano, the Vatican's official newspaper, runs a story about a Christian boy found dead in Hungary, his blood drained out by Jews who wanted it for their ghastly, superstitious rituals.

Myths about Jews who kill Christian children for their blood have been a popular basis for anti-Semitic pogroms throughout Europe since the Middle Ages.

It can be assumed that articles such as this, printed in the Vatican's official newspaper, accurately reflect the sentiment of Pope Leo XIII at this time.
