An excerpt from The Mystery of the Bird Heads, an Israeli Film Service documentary about the old machzor (prayer book) of the Jewish community in Worms.
As a German boy, I experienced the difficult experience of Kristallnacht, says Cristian Bart, who grew up in the Jewish quarter in Worms. Everything was packed with articles and furniture taken out of the houses, I saw the synagogue burn, he recalls.
