Mein Deutschland, du sollst leben (Es zog eine junge, sieghafte Schar...)

Post by axis1 » 19 Apr 2020 22:27

Dear friends, I once had a song from the Third Reich in my mp3 state, "Mein Deutschland, du sollst leben". Unfortunately, it got lost, disappeared, maybe deleted. I have searched the whole internet and I cannot find it. Do any of you have this song in your collection?

Recording by Hans-Heinz Bollmann was removed by youtube.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

This is another good example of people (not Greg of course) making things up and spreading disinformation:

"Mein Deutschland, du sollst leben" is a patriotic song from the first half of 1932 (i.e. Weimar Republic, not Third Reich), composed by Fritz Spies (Op. 35a), with lyrics by Wilhelm Regeniter. From Hofmeister's monthly report, May 1932:

It was recorded for the Lindström's Gloria label on 15.05.1933 by singer Hans Heinz Bollmann accompanied by a male choir and orchestra conducted by Otto Dobrindt (all civilian artists). Original label:

And then, in the 2010s, some "brainiac" uploads the song on YouTube, renames it "Mein Deutschland, du sollst leben, du darfst nicht untergeh'n" and makes up that the performing orchestra is "NS-Mitglieder Oechester" (poorly-attempting to immitate the name of Patria label performers called Mitglieder des NS-Orchesterrings) and that it originates from the record "Partia 131" (notice the incorrect spelling again).

The real Patria 131 record actually featured medley "Was der SA-Mann singt" (credited as "Was wir singen"), parts III & IV.

Then another "brainiac", without checking, adds the YouTube disinformation on Wikipedia, and credits the orchestra as "NS-Reichsorchester".

One more time: ignore Wikipedia articles. They are very much unreliable, especially when it comes to our topic. Also, don't trust YouTube uploaders unless you make sure that they're real record collectors, who provide original record labels in their videos along with the sound.

Cheers,
Ivan
