Wir sind da! – Tour Juli 2021 mit T&T Wollner

So happy to be finally on tour again! And even more happy to be on tour with two amazing musicians & great friends: Tabea Wollner and Tobias Wollner (Duo T&T Wollner from Magdeburg) – we are a perfect team!
My first live events with my book „Wir sind da!“ brought us to Synagogue Halle (12.07.), Moses Mendelssohn Academy Halberstadt (13.07.), Marienkirche Stendal (14.07.) and Moritzhof Magdeburg (15.07.) – a big thank you to Landeszentrale für politische Bildung Sachsen-Anhalt for inviting us! More events in autumn …

The ultimate Yiddish Tango: Shik mir a shtral – שיק מיר אַ שטראַל


Shik mir a shtral
Vos zol balaykhtn mayne vegn
Tsutrayb dem vint, vos er bashevet antkegn
Shik mir di zun, zi zol oystrikenen di trern
Vos yorn fil, zey flisn shtil
Un kenen nit oyfhern …

Send me a ray
To light my path
Drive away the wind that howls in my face
Send the sun to dry my tears
That have flown silently for years
And cannot stop …

(Author unknown, performed by Christian Dawid for our Yiddish film Boris Dorfman – A mentsh)
