In the Nazi-mandated ghettos during World War II, audiences gathered in makeshift clubs and theaters to hear newly-created songs, rooted in Jewish folk
song, European cabaret, American jazz and Argentine tango. Jewish
performers tuned these cosmopolitan songs in a local key: satirical and
elegiac, political and personal, angry and heartsick, creating something
scarcely conceivable: art at the edge of the abyss.
