Religious ceremony in Jewish cemetery in Łódź.
Gathering desecrated Torah scrolls on carts. Burial of Torah scrolls, prayer shawls, in ceremony. Brief shot of entrance to the Jewish cemetery. Weeping onlookers. Cantor singing. See Photo Archives worksheet number 09147 for a still of this event. Big warehouse filled with descrated scrolls. Men unrolling damaged scrolls.
