This memorial photograph album documents the funeral of Moshe Yidel Gelbart. Gelbart died of appendicitis on February 25, 1935, in Mogielnica, Poland. The album, made of fabric and paper, contains 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 this book pictures a broken candle and a broken tree, symbolic of a life cut short. Each page includes decorative labels in Hebrew. This album was given to one of his two brothers, George Goldberg or Israel Geldbart, in South Carolina.
