Yiddish revolutionary songs

PLAYLIST below

Many revolutionary songs have been written in Yiddish, by composers such as David Edlestadt, Mordkhay Gebirtig, Morris Winchevsky, or spontaneously created and chanted by the masses during street demonstrations.
These songs reflect the ferocity of years of misery, exploitation and dictatorship, but also the hope of a better world, free of injustices and war.

This playlist offers a selection of these songs of struggle.
