The lively Jewish neighborhoods of Warsaw, including Zamenhof Street and the commercial 'beehive' Nalewki Street, were home to 400,000 Jews before World War II.
A Day in Warsaw sets Warsaws modern multi-storied buildings and broad streets against its old market square and Jewish quarter
Trucks, trolleys, autos and buses meet horse-drawn carriages, pushcarts and porters in the bustling commercial district
Also shown are the Yiddish Theater, Gensza Cemetery and other Jewish institutionsthe community council, hospitals, schools and synagogues
At films end, after Sabbath services, families pour into Krashinsky Park where children play and adults spiritedly debate the issues of the day.
