Notes The music of the ghetto and the Holocaust contains songs which are uniquely emotional and moving. This album highlights the music of this era with such songs as Yisroelik, A Leben fun a Groshen, and Ani Maamin. In Slobodker Yishiva uses the tune from Rojinkes mit Mandlen but tells of the holocaust. Other cherished songs include Shtiler, Shtiler; Moishelech Shloimemlech; and Zog Nit Kenmol.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
