Subject: RE: Holocaust/shoa songs. In memory.
For some years I have had an album which I have listened to only once. I cannot bear to hear it again.
The LP (from 1966)is "SONGS OF THE GHETTO", 'Years of Despair ' sung in Yiddish by Sarah Gorby - Philips PCC 221. The album contains songs cover the years 1939 - 1945.
I note that at least one of the songs mentioned a few posts above, 'Es Brent' is on this album as 'S'Brent, Breiderlich'. The English translation of the song on the album, although unattributed, is extremely poetic.
