Moshe Yidel Gelbart funeral memorial albums, 1935
Moshe Yidel Gelbart funeral memorial albums, 1935 Two memorial photograph albums documenting the funeral of Moshe Yidel Gelbart. Gelbart died of appendicitis on February 25, 1935, in Mogielnica, Poland. The albums, made of fabric and paper, contain black and white photographs that chronicle Gelbart's funeral procession, his casket, mourners, and gravesite, including an image of Gelbart with his wife and son eight days before his death. The cover of each book pictures a broken candle and a broken tree, symbolic of a life cut short. Each page includes decorative labels in Hebrew that describe the photographs. The albums were sent to his two brothers, George Goldberg and Israel Geldbart, in South Carolina.
