MAX NIRENBERG, A HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR
AND A LOVER OF YIDDISH THEATRE


 

My father was born in 1892 in Nowy Korchin and was sent to Lodz around 1900 to live with his grandmother and to apprentice as a tailor. 
 He loved music and song in languages he knew, mostly Yiddish and Polish and Russian songs that are old now.
My father was an avid Yiddish theatre goer in Lodz. He told me that he went more than once to the same production.
He survived the Ghetto, Auschwitz and other camps. He went back to Lodz, and we left in 1950. -- from his daughter, Rita Korn.

The following songs are stringed together, seven or them, each separated from the next by a few seconds.
Turn up your volume, as the singing, a cappella, is not loud, not always clear, etc.
The titles may be wrong; corrections can be sent to: steve@moyt.org.
The order of the songs is:

1. Umer iz a zugee
2. Pintele yid
3.Palestina
4. Lodz Ghetto Song
5. Dus iz a yidele
6. Du bistu oyf dem velt
7. A bisele mazl
