Thread Name: Holocaust/shoa songs. In memory.
Subject: RE: Holocaust/shoa songs. In memory.
Mary Garvey: Die Gedanken Sind Frei (Literal translation: The Thoughts are Free) is not specific to Holocaust---made famous by Pete Seeger. Peat Bog Soldiers is, supposedly, Holocaust specific and yet there were versions sung during the Spanish Civil War. One of the most beautiful versions of this piece is by Paul Robeson---but then what is not beautiful that he sang.
