Possibly a continuation of the memorial ceremony depicted in Story 4334. There is somber music but no narration. The camera pans down a large banner with a picture of Mordecai Anielewicz. Anielewicz, commander of the Zydowska Organizacja Bojowa [Jewish Fighting Organization, ZOB], was killed during the Warsaw ghetto uprising. The next shot shows the interior of a theater, with a huge crowd listening to speeches. One of the speakers is Haike Grosman, a Jewish woman from Bialystok, who was active in the resistance and who after the war became a member of the Central Committee of Polish Jews. The scene changes to a panning shot of the destroyed remains of the Warsaw ghetto. The camera focuses on a street now named for Anielewicz. A parade of people, some of whom hold wreaths and baners, march down the street. This is probably the same memorial service as that shown in Story 4334 (dedication of the Rapoport monument); at least one shot shows the same group of people. However, the Rapoport monument itself does not appear in this clip.
