The plot of this picture was based on a real story about the love of a Jewish girl to a guy of a different nationality, for which she was brutally beaten by her community.
The picture depicts gloomy twilight. There are heavy clouds in the sky, crows are circling over this place. The whole environment depresses the viewer. It can be seen that the artist painstakingly depicted a gloomy landscape to complete the image.
A girl stands clinging to a fence. It is noticeable that she was running away, that they were chasing her. But now she is at an impasse and has nowhere to retreat. The angry crowd overtook the unfortunate girl. The villagers attacked a young lover who with what: someone clenches his sticks in his hands, and someone clenched his fists. Blows poured on the unfortunate: she did not try to resist, she alone could not cope with the crowd.
Not all villagers seek to squeeze a girl. There are some neighbors who ask the crowd to change their minds. In the foreground, an elderly woman is clearly visible, who asks everyone to think again of a young man who is brandishing a stick at her.
On the right is the girl’s mother. She crouched down on the ground and covered her face in pain and shame with her hands. He turned his back to his daughter, she does not want to see what is happening. Next to her is her husband, the father of the unfortunate girl. He looks at what is happening with horror, reaches out to the crowd to stop them from this act. But nobody pays attention to the father: the crowd longs for reprisal.
The worst thing is that the children came to look at the violence. But none of the crowd of angry residents of the community is trying to take their children away from here - everyone is either very busy, or they think that such an event is quite normal and normal and it will only benefit the children to watch it.
It is easy to guess what happened afterwards. Alas, the girl was unlikely to escape reprisal. Enraged, angry people considered her a daring act as their personal insult, for which the unfortunate and paid.
