Jews who wrote songs at Theresienstadt were gassed at Auschswitz

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Music — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 8:40 am

Yes, it’s true, dear readers. Jews were allowed to compose music at Theresienstadt, but were then taken to Auschwitz and killed in the gas chamber.

Obviously, the Nazis wanted to steal music from the Jews before killing them. As everyone knows, the Germans can’t carry a tune in a basket!

You can read about this terrible crime in this news article: http://www.poconorecord.com/entertainmentlife/20170204/work-by-jewish-holocaust-victims-lives-on-in-ute-lempers-songs-for-eternity

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

A lot of work [by Jewish composers] actually was written at Theresienstadt, and there are a bunch of songs that are out of this history of this specific camp, but all of those were works written by artists who, in ’44, were brought on the trains to Auschwitz, and all of them were gassed. There was a quite incredible repertoire [of music] out of this concentration camp.

End quote

You can’t get any more cruel than that: the Nazis allowed the Jews to compose music, while they were prisoners in a ghetto, and then they killed them in gas chambers. Oh, the humanity!

The following quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

Not only does every song have a story, every composer has a story. There’s Ilse Weber, a poet, writer and composer in the Prague ghetto who was brought to Theresienstadt and then brought with her entire family to Auschwitz later on and was killed, but her husband survived, and he was able to hide scrolls of her music in the columns of the horse stables of Theresienstadt. After being liberated from Auschwitz, he made it back to Theresienstadt to look for those scrolls, and he found them and published them many years later.

The following quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote:

…. an amazing story about Ilse Weber that really was breathtaking and horrible to tell. She became a nurse at Theresienstadt in charge of the children. She brought them with her on the train to Auschwitz, and she knew for some reason when they arrived they would all be brought straight to the gas chambers.

She told the children once they entered the gas chambers to sing. Because she had always sung with the children. That was always her way of making them feel better. She told them to breathe in deep and sing loud once they would enter the shower rooms, because she knew it would initiate death faster through deep inhalation, so the struggle would not be so long. It’s just so horrible.

End quote

How fortunate that this woman knew all abut the gas chambers! Why didn’t those stupid Nazis keep the gas chambers a secret?

I visited Theresienstadt for the second time in the year 2000 and took photos which you can see here: http://www.scrapbookpages.com/CzechRepublic/Theresienstadt/TheresienstadtGhetto/GhettoTour/Tour05.html
