Week 7, lecture 5

In this lecture, we covered the musical life of Łódź ghetto.

Łódź was a predominantly Yiddish-speaking ghetto, a major centre of Yiddish-language culture in the first half of the twentieth century. We discussed how the extreme conditions of the ghettos affected musical culture there.

As part of the lecture, we listened to the following pieces of music:

‘ver klapt du azoy’ Łódź ghetto song
‘Makh tsi di eygelekh’ Łódź ghetto song
‘Ver klapt du azoy’ Łódź ghetto song
