Yale News: Songs of survival from Yale’s Fortunoff Archive of Holocaust testimonies

Yale News: Songs of survival from Yale’s Fortunoff Archive of Holocaust testimonies. “‘Shtubuneltsto’ is revived on ‘Cry My Heart, Cry! Songs from Testimonies, Volume 2,’ the latest album of music drawn from the Fortunoff Archive’s collection of more than 4,400 video testimonies. In sharing their stories, the survivors occasionally recalled songs or poetry that touched them before or during the Holocaust. The new album and its 2019 predecessor, ‘Where is Our Homeland?,’ transform these memories into stylistically diverse collections of songs that showcase the rich cultures of the people who created, sang, and enjoyed them.” The music is free to listen to and there will be a virtual concert on April 28.
