The Yellow Ticket (Der Gelbe Schein), a 1918 German silent film, follows the double life of Lea, a young Jewish woman who leaves a Polish shtetel to attend medical school in Tsarist Russia only to become entrapped in the prostitution industry. Starring the legendary icon of the silent film era Pola Negri, The Yellow Ticket is remarkably progressive for its time: it is the first to explore Jewish discrimination and anti-Semitic restrictions in Tsarist Russia. It also includes a rare footage of the Jewish quarter in Warsaw.
