Götz, Christian von; Schaechter, Dalia

The Yiddish composer Mordechai Gebirtig wrote songs about life in the Jewish neighborhood of Kazimierz in the city of Krakow, Poland. The songs tell stories about rabbis and factory workers, gangsters and lovers. “During the day he polished furniture, at night he polished songs,” said his contemporaries. Gebirtig was shot by Germans in the Krakow Ghetto on June 4th, 1942. For the Gebirtig Project, opera-singer Dalia Schaechter and opera-director Christian von Gotz collected the most important of his songs in an intense and personal recording. Some of the songs are recorded for the first time.
