Rare Color Footage of Jewish Life in the Shtetl

In this archive footage uploaded by Yad Vashem, we get a rare color look at life in a Jewish shtetl before the Holocaust. In 1921, 550 Jews lived in the town of Wielopole Skrzyńskie, constituting about half of the local population. At that time, some 20 small Jewish factories were in operation there. David Teitelbaum (1891-1972), an amateur filmmaker who was born in Wielopole, emigrated to the United States in the early 1900s and became a successful businessman.
