The day was young, and three men were walking slowly and carefully along the rough road which led to the "Jewish" cemetery.
While they were conversing, one of them said that there is a saying that, when night falls and everything is still, the dead Jews rise and begin dancing to their hearts content.
This seemed ridiculous to one of the men and he decided to test this theory by going to the cemetery during the night.
Although he did not believe in that story he was still afraid and seemed to hear noises all around him. Then he had an idea; he decided to put a knife into a grave.
As it was quite cold that night, the man wore a robe and it was so long that he could hardly walk. He kneeled down and put the knife into the grave, but when he tried to get up something was pulling him down and he could not get up. This made him convinced that a dead man was pulling him and he had a heart attack.
Next morning he was found dead. But after some investigation it was found that when putting the knife into the grave he also put part of his robe in.
