Hello, von thoma

Correct, it is the HJ anthem, "Uns're Fahne flattert uns voran!" It's a 1933 "Grammophon" recording by Stabskapelle der Hitlerjugend & Gebietsspielschar Berlin, conducted by the composer, Hans-Otto Borgmann.

Cheers,
Ivan

Thanks for the help Ivan

Also it sounds but in a different version in the film
"Hitlerjunge Quex", by Hans Steinhoff, or even
in "Triumph des Willens", by Leni Riefenstahl

Hello,

This is gonna be an interesting one. I'm wondering if anyone has any info on a Japanese recording of this song? I've only heard it twice, sounded legit and from the correct time period. Instead of 'Unsere Fahne flattert uns voran', the lyrics in Japanese were 'Hirameku wa ga hata yo'. I remember seeing something about this recording in Japanese somewhere years ago, but now I can't locate it at all. I believe the recording was made due to close ties to Germany. A similar Japanese version of 'Giovinezza' or 'Hitlerleute' was also made, can't seem to find that at all anymore either.

Randomly thought of that due to the quiz question I brought up.

Thanks!

Hello,

I've liked the lively Japanese version very much, but my lack of knowledge of the Japanese language prevents me from finding more info on it. I've only managed to find out that the singer was (apparently) Ryozo Okuda, 1938 (info from a YouTube channel, I wasn't able to check how accurate it is). If there's any knowledgeable Japanese (or other) record collector/researcher reading this, please feel free to join the discussion and shed some light on this interesting recording.

Cheers,
Ivan
