Jews in Warsaw in 1938

Film | Accession Number: 2000.621.1 | RG Number: RG-60.2581 | Film ID: 2333

The following notes are from NCJF documentation: The lively Jewish neighborhoods of Warsaw, including Zamenhof Street and the commercial "beehive" Nalewki Steet, were home to 400,000 Jews before World War II. "A Day in Warsaw" sets Warsaw's modern multistoried buildings and broad streets against its old market square and Jewish quarter. Trucks, trolleys, autos and buses meet horse-drawn carriages, pushcarts, and porters in the bustling commercial district. Also shown are the Yiddish Theater, Gensza Cemetery and other Jewish institutions-the community council, hospitals, schools and synagogues. At film's end, after Sabbath services, families pour into Krashinsky Park where children play and adults spiritedly debate the issues of the day.
