Yiddish Glory: The Lost Songs Of World War Ii
Label: SIX DEGREES RECORDS
As World War II raged through Europe, a group of Soviet Yiddish scholars embarked on an ambitious goal to preserve Jewish culture of the 1940s. These historians believed that it was their duty to record stories, poems and songs by Jews who lived through this. They hoped to publish these songs, but the project was never completed. Now for the first time the public will hear the voices of the Soviet Jews who were long thought to be forever silenced by Hitler and Stalin.
