They say the Devil came to Lublin, Poland once, in the early spring of the year 1797 of the Christian calendar. For the Jews of Lublin, it was the month of Nisan in the year 5557.

There are two calendars, because there are two Lublins: the Lublin of the Polish Catholics, who fear only God, the Devil, and their local nobleman, Count Sobieski… and the Lublin of the Jews, who fear everyone and everything, and with good reason. For despite having lived in Poland for hundreds of years, the Jews live every day in Lublin only by the grace of the Count's uncertain tolerance.

In The Witches of Lublin, as the Jewish holiday of Passover nears, with it hangs the threat of violence: Violence that the Jewish community has seen before, in Lublin, and all over Eastern Europe.
