Di tsukunft




Tsukunft yugnt khor Memoirs, Warsaw, Poland, 1920s-1933. Moshe Perenson and Avrohom Slucki recall the composer Yosef Glatshteyn, who trained the singers in this chorus. Moshe Perenson stresses certain aspects of this youth chorus and also his work with dramatic groups, etc. The general tone of this talk is sparked by inspiration and warm memories. Their enthusiasm of the years of their youth permeates their words. Perenson concludes with a few vivid comments about the gala national jamboree of Jewish working youth from all over Poland, in 1933, in the Tsirk- where Moyshe Broderson’s poetic creation “Der iberbrukh” (built on historical episodes of the Jewish working class movement in Poland) was presented. The sports organization Der morgnshtern was also part of this huge gala performance. Avrohom Slucki then adds some of his own memories and sings the songs which his young 12 year old brother (at the time), Elye-Leyb Slucki, sang at that particular gala performance, O, di velt vet vern yinger, etc. (Text Morris Winchevsky). Slucki concludes with additional memories, which he continues on the next tape. Information from LC tape log. No log in RG 620 tape box.
