Yom Kippur without Fascists

I’ve been following the Yiddish Glory project for a while now and this year there’s something special for Yom Kippur.  Yom Kippur without Fascists surfaced in Almaty, Kazakhstan where it was written in 1945.  It fantasizes Adolf Hitler as the kapporot; a sacrificial chicken.  It has the same dark humour as most of these Yiddish songs of resistance.  There’s a great performance of it on Youtube or you can follow this link to Six Degrees Records where you can buy an audio recording or read the full lyrics.
