Songs from “The Wall”: The Play about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising: Ghetto, Partisan, Folk and Love Songs

In 1960, the play The Wall hit Broadway stages. Little remembered now, this piece by Millard Lampell (based on a novel by John Hersey) was about the Warsaw Ghetto uprising against the Nazis. Here is the music from the play—ghetto, partisan, folk and love songs sung in Yiddish and accompanied simply by accordion.
