This song was composed under the leaden skies of the Holocaust. It was a time when the vibrant spirit of life continued in the face of suffering and death. There was song and there was humor. There were intrigues and struggles. In other words, the concentration camps had every aspect of life on the “outside” and they also had the distortions, contradictions, and behaviors that were needed to survive the unsurviveable.
