Description

From the earliest times, violent animosity has always reigned between Slavs and Israelites, giving rise to bloody conflicts. The Russian authorities find it difficult to repress these persecutions that public opinion, in Europe and America, sees not without deep emotion. It is about one of these recent conflicts that we edit this tape, showing how far can go the brutality and savagery of these peoples fueled by a secular hatred, even explicable, but absolutely contrary to our current civilization.

Lots of action in short package

This film is filled with action, even if it is short, about Anti-Semitic hunting for Jews in Russia. This was the topic of quite a few movies at the time as it was an "actual" event in Russia - and these films tried to show or tell the world of the drama that was unfolding. Siegmund Lubin even duped the film and presented it as his own. I found it to be more full of action than the usual movies from the time. There is a 3 scenes, two outside and one inside, and they are all pretty long takes - making it pretty impressive, especially with real horses and all.
