Storyboard Text

  • Yakov lived in Shtetl for many years. He believes that he should leave and head to Kiev. He wants to leave for a fresh start. There was a murder of a christian boy. The boy was murdered in the same place he lived. He thinks he's in trouble, for living in an area forbidden to jews. He also has his meeting with Raisl which he presents him with a confession to sign. Between these times, Yakov is in prison and his situation becomes worse and worse. The situation has gotten worse.
  • Yakov writes that his confession is truly a lie in the place where he is supposed to sign it. Yakov receives his long-awaited indictment. A trial is scheduled for Yakov. He is held for thirty months before being brought to trial. Without a charge and trial. Yakov could be held in prison. During his months in prison, he has time to think about his sad life and human nature in general. Part of Bok's torment is the knowing that those who attempt to help him are subjected to harassment.
  • Yakov is taken in a carriage to his trial. The ending came rather quickly. There is little written about the trial. The lawyer also informs Bok that the Jewish community may have another great pogrom. In the end of the novel, while on his way to court Bok has an imaginary dialogue with Tsar Nicholas II. It is during this final part of events that Bok's transport is attacked. At least one Cossack guard is maimed. Bok ends in "there is no such thing as an apolitical man, especially a Jew."
