Shpatsiren zenen mir gegangen | Tants a bisele mit mir

Recorded Sound | Accession Number: 2017.371 | RG Number: RG-91.0171

Relatively rare Soviet Yiddish recordings that obliquely document anti-Jewish policies in the postwar USSR. A: Shpatsiren zenen mir gegangen; B: Tants a bisele mit mir.

Folksinger Zinovy Shulman (1904-1977) was imprisoned in 1949. The song on Shulman's "B" side, here called "Tants a bisele mit mir" (Dance with me a while), was the source for the Vilna ghetto song, "Hot zikh mir di shikh tserisn" (I've torn my shoes).

Phonograph record 4 (purple label): Cyrillic, 2 sides.
Zinovy Shulman, voice
N. G. Valter, piano
