Market and Jewish quarter of Krakow

Film | Accession Number: 2014.534 | RG Number: RG-60.1776 | Film ID: 4120

In Krakow, various adults and children in the lively Jewish quarter. A street sign in Hebrew letters is visible, men sleep sitting on the threshold of a building. A uniformed carriage driver talks to the camera. A throng of people crowd around a man dressed in a hat and coat, putting their hands out as though asking for something. Men carry heavy loads through the street on their backs. A crowded open-air street market. A younger man plays a joke on an elderly woman, covering her eyes with her kerchief. Good shots of Jews, market vendors, and children. Inside, a woman washes her hands in front of a window, and a man uses a sewing machine. A group of young women pose for the camera. Children help a woman push a cart laden with goods down the street.
