None, there is one scene where the daughters are in their slips but nothing is shown.

No real violence occurs in the film, but many intense moments.

Just before the end of the first half, a pogram is held against the Jewish village, the scene is not graphic or very violent, first they break up a wedding by pushing over tables, ripping up table cloths and scaring people away, the only violence that happens is a man is hit on his head by a candlestick and then the chaos ends as The Constable stops the distruction from going any further.

Moments later we see the rest of the Pogram with a wagon being set on fire, windows smashed, and property destroyed, this lasts around 20 seconds and is not very violent but more intense.

Russian Soldiers break up a protest by drawing their swords and attack the croud, no one is killed or seriously injured, but hit with the sword like a club.

There is a lot of drinking in a bar scene. At least a couple of men appear drunk.

There is a dream sequence that takes place in a graveyard. All of the departeds pop out of graves, but they aren't evil or menacing. The whole sequence is in song, and it is so comically over-the-top, that it won't be scary for most.

The Pogram scene is quite intense as the Russans attack the Jewish half of the village.
