Deutschland ist erwacht (Schwarz war die Nacht...)

Post by Alarm_Uboat » 28 Oct 2023 12:32

The information I managed to find about this song:

Musik: Hermann Scheibenhofer
Text: Hans Pflanzer

I found three versions that were recorded.

-Gr. Militär-Orchester (Tempo)
-Polydor Blas-Orchester (Polydor)
-Musikzug der SS-Standarte 42 (Gloria)

I managed to hear the first two versions of this song, but I couldn't find the full lyrics.

If you have more detailed information, I will be very grateful.
In the book by Prieberg it is indicated that the text can be found in - Die Soldaten der neuen Zeit! (1934)

The authors were Fritz German and Hermann Scheibenhofer.
Who were these "authors"? You don't need to search further than the music section. Just type "Scheibenhofer".

It turned out Fritz German is a pseudonym of Hermann Scheibenhofer. This confused me, because on the record I saw (German).As always, I was in a hurry and did not check the information in more detail.

And yet there's no hurry. Patience and thoroughness! Re-check everything and then re-check it again.
