Forgotten Yiddish Songs
And now, these songs are no longer forgotten. Actually, they never were, for a young girl kept them in her memory for a long lifetime.
Sara Sliwka was still a child, 13 years old, when she was taken away from home by German soldiers and dragged to a camp. Home underwent terrible changes - at that time it meant the ghetto. Her few memories from the time before that are bound up with songs: "Brinnele", "Dus Äppele", "Effn Hantchele", "Surele".
