JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general
Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
I can do no better job in introducing this chapter >from the Yizkor book of Suvalk
(Suwalki) Poland than whoever assembled this collection: "Yiddish folksongs in
Eastern Europe knew no boundaries. The melodies went >from country to country,
wherever Jews lived and wherever Yiddish was their language. Nevertheless, there
were some Yiddish folk songs which were characteristic of one country or even of
one region and were sung there more than elsewhere. Suwalk Jews were no exception.
We show here some of the songs which were especially popular over 100 years ago."
