There was another concert during March 1941 Ostdeutsche Kulturtage in Warthegau.
This time in Litzmannstadt on the 19th of March.

Here is a reminder from local newspaper and after concert article from 21st of March. Nice handwritten greetings from Niel to town residents.
What was that new piece Niel mentioned he was working on, apparently dedicated to SS?

Thanks very much for this article, Greg.

As was written in the text, it's "Wer sich uns entgegenstellt, der fällt!" - one of the most powerful marches of Niel's, featuring motives from the SS anthem (Wenn alle untreu werden). The vocal part was announced with the opening tune of the SS anthem (Wenn alle untreu werden, so bleiben wir doch treu), and the entire composition ends with the closing tune of the SS anthem (Wir woll'n das Wort nicht brechen...) - but in the Niel/Walden lively oompah-oompah style.

My favourite Herms Niel song will always be "Der Stoßtrupp"
followed by "Kleine Elisabeth – schöne Elisabeth!"

PS I think this subsection needs more actual music links to listen too :D

Re: "Rózsika" (Hungarian "Erika") lyrics

Ivan Ž. wrote:Does anyone have the original lyrics (3 strophes) for Hungarian variant of Niel's "Erika"? Lyrics were written by Dr. Szendrő Endre and published by Rózsavölgyi és Társa, Budapest, in 1942.
Recently I was looking for the same subject and got this:

  • Kint a pusztán nyílik egy szép rózsaszál,
    a neve Rózsika.
    Minden álmom, minden vágyam arra száll,
    ahol jár Rózsika.

    Mert a csókja édes, annyi szent,
    Kis köténye illatozva leng.
    Kint a pusztán nyílik egy szép rózsaszál,
    a neve Rózsika.

    Szomszédunkban van egy édes kis leány,
    a neve Rózsika.
    Nincs a földön nála jobb és szebb talán,
    a neve Rózsika.

    Rozmaringos ágyban alszik bent,
    Pitymallatkor nótaszóra kel.
    Kint a pusztán nyílik egy szép rózsaszál,
    a neve Rózsika.

    Kis szobám is szép virágot rejteget,
    a neve Rózsika.
    Reggelente édes-búsan rám nevet,
    kedvesem Rózsika.

Anyway, you can check if the lyrics are 'comparable with original soundtrack.
