The pictures from lives of Jews in Poland: collective prayers of Jews on the fields. Jews from a small town are working outside, shoveling the snow away. Some old Jew shall say a prayer on the death anniversary of his deceased relative. When the soldier had walked away, he turned around with his back to him and said a prayer. After that all Jews responded “amen”.
