Contents: Jews are trapped in the «Pale of Settlement» under savage conditions: second-class citizenship, poverty, pogroms,
internal division and mass exodus - based on the works of Sholom Aleichem, the Yiddish humorist who experienced it.
Aleichem offers a front seat to events he himself experienced - thus historical objectivity of a rare kind. Emotional impact
of events on people - captured here - is history one remembers!
