It is called "Erika". It is an old German folk song loved by soldiers and civilians alike.

A good site about it is here:

Another request,I thought I would post it in this thread to save space since it's about songs from schindlers list..

What was that song that was playing when all of the officers were having a party? It was a classical song,It was played during some type of party or something.I can't remember since it's been years since i've seen the movie.

Yep. Also check out - Seress Rezeo (sp?) "Gloomy Sunday".

It's that bit playing on the radio when Oskar is dressing up to go to the officers party at the very start of the movie :)

Thanks for that link!

Although I must mention that the versions mentioned there are a lot more "softer" than that stern rendition on Schindlers List! :)

Amazon.com has the soundtrack for sale. This site has more details, including audio samples. (The theme music itself may be simply titled, "Theme From Schindler's List", without an alternative name.)

Thanks sylvieK4, but here in Brazil we have a devaluated currency that turns that kind of purchase very very expensive...but I´ll try to save some money to buy a lot of good books, cds and dvd´s I see around here. :)

Hi, Guarnere. Even if you can't buy the cd, the sample links at "amazon.com" still allow you to hear parts of each song/ musical piece - so you can know the title of the song you like. :)

Eden Zhang's idea is good.

I have the Violin Solo by Itzhak Perlman and the Piano solo by John Williams on my hard drive. I'd send it to your email but I don't think Hotmail will accept it.

Schindler's List

Post by von Putzbrunn » 26 Jul 2007 10:49

A few minutes into the movie, right after Shindler starts a party in the restaurant, right before Shindler goes to Judenrat to raise money for his fabric, theres a clip where the SS are marching and singing a song. Can anyone please identify this one? The words for it would be great too!
