50th anniversary of the Bund, 1947. Credits in Polish and some kind of introduction written in Yiddish. People march with flags down the streets of the remains of the Warsaw ghetto. Some of the marchers carry large wreaths, which are placed on the monument the Warsaw ghetto fighters. Men carry a casket containing (according to the narration) the exhumed body of Dr. Leon Feiner, who died one month after liberation (see Biographical Notes). Men identified as Dr. Schuldenfrei and Minister Grossfeld speak to mourners. Dirt is shoveled onto the casket. Marek Edelman speaks (see Biographical Notes). The narrator reads the names engraved on a stone tablet which is part of the monument. A flag emblazoned with the years 1897-1947 waves in front of the monument memorializing the "fallen Bundist heroes."
00:05:53 The narrator announces the opening of the 50th anniversary gathering of the Bund over an image of a man speaking at a podium. A large banner reading "50 Bundu" hangs behind him. The camera focuses on a large painting of Karl Marx and a portrait of Havel Neuach (?). Dr. Schuldenfrei speaks (voiceover narration; his words are not audible). Shots of the filled lecture hall. More speeches from representatives of different Bund factions.
