    This is a cemetery in Sofia, Bulgaria. The graves are of the people killed by the bomb explosion in the Cathedral of Sveta Nedelia in Sofia on April 16th, 1925 (I checked the names which appear on the crosses with the list of the victims of the explosion). The building in ruins in the second shot (0:22-0:26) is the Cathedral of Sv. Nedelia (cf. the footage of the destroyed cathedral in 'Murder Most Foul'- Film 392.31). The date of the footage is therefore not 1935, but 1925 (end of April or beginning of May).
