An exhibition dedicated to the memory of a Czech Jew who was convicted of ritually murdering a young Christian woman in 1899 will be held in Vienna on Nov. 21. The exhibition was organized by campaigners who believe that Leopold Hilsner, who came from the Czech town of Polna, was wrongfully convicted of the crime in an era of rampant anti-Semitism.
