    Auschwitz Survivor Uses Hip-Hop to Teach Germany About Holocaust

    An Auschwitz survivor has teamed up with a German rapper to remind the country's youth of the Holocaust.

    Esther Bejarano, 85, from Saarbrucken, and Kutlu Yurtseven, a 36-year-old Turkish immigrant, are on tour across Germany to coincide with Holocaust Memorial Day tomorrow. They released a CD last year.

    Mrs Bejerano was forced to play in a girls' orchestra at the Nazi death camp as trainloads of Jews arrived. She says music kept her alive as a prisoner, while her parents and sister Ruth were killed.

    “We played with tears in our eyes. The new arrivals came in waving and applauding us, but we knew they would be taken directly to the gas chambers.”

    Two years ago Mr Yurtseven contacted Mrs Bejerano, who for 20 years has played traditional Yiddish music in a band with her children Edna and Yoram. The rappers in Mr Yurtseven's Microphone Mafia mixed Jewish songs with hip-hop beats and also wrote new lyrics for some songs that are more accessible for a younger audience.
    .
    “Yoram told me that first of all he had to ask his mother Esther what she thought about a crossover project with a bunch of young rappers,” said Mr Yurtseven. “Our band wanted to do something against the growing racism and anti-Semitism in Germany.”

    Mrs Bejarano said: “We want to keep the memories of the Holocaust alive, but at the same time look into the future and encourage young people to take a stand against new Nazis.

    “I know what racism can lead to and the members of Microphone Mafia are immigrants and have experienced their share of discrimination as well.”

    Why do they have to present these things through the worst form of music ever produced?

    How wonderful. The lowest form of guilt-mongering and political opportunism teams up with the lowest form of primitive trash "music" of today. What a perfect encapsulation of our sad times.

    Elderly Jew and Muslim/Arab musician use Negro music to appeal to German youngsters? Looking at the facts in that one sentence tells me we have naught much to fear of this project.

    Let's face it, 95% of those who are immersed deeply enough in Hip-Hop culture to bother with stuff that is marginally more intellectual and thus underground than the gansta-rap type of thing is already living such a degenerate and brainwashed lifestyle that they're not going to be the first to come to our side of the fence anyhow.

    As such, let them appeal to the idiot part of our youth, it's merely another "drop of fat on the cooker plate", so to speak. It's going to take Hel of a lot of good example to have these Hip-Hop-fanatic German youths interested in a Folkish assessment of matters and lifestyle, so all it means is one more degeneracy for them to shed as they become useful members of the folk again.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Ha! irony.... The Turks were the perpetrators of the Armenian genocide, and this foreigner has the nerve to be spewing his crap music out about what the Germans did?

    It just gets better and better!

    Yes, there’s something very clichéd about Jews recruiting immigrant hip hoppers to lecture the host population. I wonder who is dancing to whose tune here?

    HipHop is accustic diarrhoea and the holocaust industry ideological diarrhoea. It makes sense to combine both to produce a tsunami of mental bedlam.

    Deliciously hilarious. Sounds like something out of a Spike Lee / Woody Allan collaboration.

    The Auschwitz Tour

    On the positive side, let's hope this extravaganza is ignored at the box office and it makes nary a euro on stage...however, could be bad news for train riders, as this act may have to set up on the boarding platforms to play for change.
