Deborah, a beautiful Jewish maiden, driven from her home in a large city, found refuge in the woods near a small town. With her was two of her own faith, a woman and an old man named Abraham. During her wandering Deborah met Joseph, the son of Lorenz, burgomaster of the town, and neither the girl's inherited hatred for the Christians, nor the young man's contempt for her race could prevent love coming to them. Its arrival swept away the least traces of racial and religious enmity, and Deborah and Joseph resolved to journey to the new world and a new life. Nathan, the town's schoolmaster, unknown to the people of the place, was an Apostate Jew, who feared exposure. He feared and hated the people of his own race. Discovering the attachment between Joseph and Deborah, he informed the burgomaster, and then persuaded Joseph to consent to a test of Deborah's love.

The story is likely to convince the heart
3 November 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Clearly aimed to please the many, this two-reel offering in which is pictured the trials and sorrows of Deborah, a Jewish girl in Austria of about a hundred years ago, is "a good guess" from the exhibitor's standpoint. The story is likely to convince the heart, although the mind will, if in a critical mood, find much that is not strongly logical in it and a bit of mawkish sentimentality. It carries the clear earmarks of the stage melodramas of the last period and includes a fine scene in which a Catholic priest stands off a mob intent on lynching the Jewess and another big picture of the persecuted girl's forgiveness of the lover who had let himself be deceived about her. Maud Fealey takes the role of Deborah and is adequately supported by a large and well-trained cast. The photography is excellent. - The Moving Picture World, July 18, 1914
