Historical (XIX. century) court process: Jewish community accused of ritual murdering Esther Solymosi.
20 December 2005 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

A well known historical fact among older people in Hungary: Poor maidservant Esther Solymosi commits suicide for hopeless love. The local Jewish community has been accused for murdering her. They fight for righteousness in a long court process. Enlightened politician Dr. Karoly Eötwös triumphs over prejudice and racism. The black and white movie is some long and boring. However, for viewers knowing or interested in society of their grandparents it is an excellent presentation of how they lived and thought. Especially it shows the old roots of antisemitism in Eastern Europe resulting in most terrible crime of history: holocaust.
