Program features an assortment of lost Yiddish songs from World War II as well as the stories of how Soviet Jews lived and died under the German occupation. The songs were collected by Moisei Beregovsky and other academics of the Kiev Cabinet for Jewish Culture. These previously unknown songs were confiscated and hidden by the Soviet government in 1949.
