The Yellow Ticket: An Early Record of 20th-Century Anti-Semitism

Listen to the full version of a piece by The Philadelphia Inquirer's David Patrick Stearns about the film, The Yellow Ticket.

The 2013 Philadelphia Jewish Music Festival concluded with a curious 1918 silent film, The Yellow Ticket, presented at the Gershman Y in Center City, with live musical accompaniment that gave the often-grainy images a new life and renewed meaning. One of the first films about anti-Semitism, The Yellow Ticket reminded The Philadelphia Inquirer's David Patrick Stearns just how much the world has changed – and how much it has yet to change.
