1753 May 26, ZHYTOMYR (Russia)
Under the influence of Bishop Solik (Kajetan Sołtyk) of Kiev, the castle court sentenced 33 Jews to death for the "ritual murder" The entire evidence was based on the “confessions” of the innkeeper and his wife, which were made after being tortured (although they later retracted their statements). Thirteen of those Jews were released upon converting. Eleven others were murdered, including the local rabbi (Polocti) and five others who were quartered alive. One couple converted on the spot and was granted a beheading. A painting was made of the child which was in the position of the archbishop of Lvov and probably still exists.
