Hello,

"Wir kämpfen" [Marsch der Winterhilfe] was recorded on 05.02.1934 by Blasorchester Carl Woitschach, which was for this occasion conducted by Josef Felix Heß, the author of the song. It was sung by an SA chorus from Berlin.

Cheers,
Ivan

Can you please help me recognize this SA song

Can you please help me recognize this SA song? I heard it long ago but can still remember the melody consisting of two parts, an introduction and the song itself. It starts with words that sounded like "Wir kämpfen für Frieden, für Freiheit und für Brot, wir wollen besiegen die kriechende (??) Not..."
This is all I remember.

It's "Wir kämpfen" [Marsch der Winterhilfe] composed/written by Josef Felix Heß and recorded in early 1934.

I've merged your post with the older topic dealing with the same song; please see more infos on the recording above.

Cheers,
Ivan

Thank you! I found the melody on Youtube. Would it be possible to help me understand the words? So far, I can grasp only separate phrases.

Wir kämpfen für Ehre, für Freiheit und für(´s) Brot
wir wollen besiegen die drückende Not
es soll heut´keiner ........
dafür mögen wir nicht ........
denn wir wollen dir immer nah getreu zur Seite stehen
ein einig Volk in Glück und Not kann niemals untergehen


I´m unsure about line 3 and 4 since the recording is not clear enough and there are many words that would fit the context.

Hello, Ocram, and :welcome:

Here are the original lyrics:
Wir kämpfen

Wir kämpfen für Ehre, für Freiheit und für Brot,
wir wollen besiegen die drückende Not!
Es soll heut' keiner hungern mehr,
dafür bürgen wir mit uns'rer Ehr'.

Dem Führer woll'n wir immerdar getreu zur Seite steh'n.
Ein einig Volk in Glück und Not kann niemals untergeh'n.
Lyricist: Josef Felix Heß

Unfortunately, the link above does not seem to be available anymore.
What Youtube currently lists under this title (Wir kämpfen für Ehre) is a completely different march, without words.
Would anyone have a different link?
