Russian intertitles. Excerpt from a film about the Jewish settlements in Crimea and in Ukraine, funded by the Agro-Joint (American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee). Children in Larinow, a settlement in the Ukraine, run up the steps to a school. Children studying at their desks in a classroom and playing outside in the yard. Men ride horses down a dirt track. A woman carrying a child puts a letter into a mailbox. Men sit outside a building and read a Yiddish newspaper. The camera focuses on the sign on the building, which is in Russian and Yiddish. A group of women sit outside talking and eating sunflower seeds. Nice shots (although too fast) of a group of old men praying in a synagogue. Scenes of Jews shopping at an outdoor market, then people unloading grain at a co-op. Very nice interior shots of a man measuring cloth for a customer. Men unload grain from a wagon. The intertitles suggest that the outdoor market represents the old way of life and the co-op represents the new.
