After the concentration camps were liberated at the end of World War II, psychologist David Boder of Chicago visited former prisoners and recorded dozens of interviews. His recordings are among the earliest testimonies from Holocaust survivors. But missing from the collection was a reel of songs.

David C. Barnett (@DCBstream) from Here & Now contributor WCPN Ideastream reports that the music tells a story you might not expect.
