  Nazi songs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The official anthem of the NSDAP was the "Horst-Wessel-Lied." The song was written by Horst Wessel, a Nazi activist, who was killed by a member of the Communist Party of Germany and subsequently considered a martyr by his National Socialist comrades.
It was the official song of the Hitler Youth: hence the occasional attacks on the elderly in the song.
The battle song of the Nazi Party was the "Kampflied der Nationalsozialisten" by Kleo Pleyer.

The song apparently had some association with the clandestine "camp patrol" that was formed by the remaining prisoners of Falkensee in 1945, among whom was Koczanowicz.

Ghetto songs served three major purposes: documentation of ghetto life, a diversion from reality, and the upholding of tradition.
Domestic songs tended to be more expressive and explicit in their lyrics than street songs.

 Hanns Eisler: Fourteen Top Eisler CDs
The songs, mostly to texts by Brecht, are expressively interpreted by actor Josef Bierbichler.
For some listeners, these songs will be an acquired taste, but it is worthwhile to compare the difference between Eisler's jazz-influenced "swinging" march style and the heavy, sentimental, beer-cellar style of Nazi "mass songs" from the same period.
The songs on this CD are a fair representation of his repertory, including two of Eisler's most striking Kampflieder from the final crisis years of the Weimar Republic: The Secret Deployment and Der rote Wedding—both are agitprop choruses written to extremely aggressive texts by the Communist poet Erich Weinert.

They sang old German folk songs around the campfire and also developed a custom of greeting each other by saying "Heil." This youth movement grew rapidly from 1900 to 1914, attracting the attention and grudging admiration of the mainstream political and religious establishment in Germany.
Their songs, borrowed mainly from the pre-war German youth movement, were based on old ballads and traditional German folklore.
The Nazis capitalized on the natural enthusiasm of young people, their craving for action and desire for peer approval, hoping, ultimately, each young person would come to regard his or her HJ or BDM unit as a home away from home, or perhaps as their real home.

 Lithuanian politician burns Israeli flag, plays Nazi songs   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Any attempt to assess contemporary efforts to prosecute Nazi war criminals in the Baltics must begin with a brief historical description of the active involvement of local collaborators in the implementation of the Final Solution in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
Unlike the situation in most of the rest of Europe, where the majority of the Jews were rounded up by the Nazis and their local helpers but were murdered in Polish death camps, practically all the Jews annihilated in the Baltics were killed locally and in many cases by their compatriots.
Local administrators played a role in the various stages of the persecution and murder of the Jews (and the confiscation of their property), and the role of propagandists should also not be ignored.

It is a tasteless distinction, but it supports the contention that under Stalin, the ruling ideology presupposed a space in which the leader and his subjects could meet as servants of Historical Reason.
Under Fascism, even in Nazi Germany, it was possible to survive, to maintain the appearance of a 'normal' everyday life, if one did not involve oneself in any oppositional political activity (and, of course, if one were not Jewish).
For that reason, Nazi police investigators looked for proofs and traces of active opposition to the regime, whereas Stalin's investigators were happy to fabricate evidence, invent plots etc.
