Political prisoners

Yesterday morning while working I thought without any obvious reason of “Die Moorsoldaten”. It’s a song my father used to listen to quite often.
The song was written and performed by political prisoners in concentration camp Börgermoor.
Here you can listen to the Moorsoldaten.
And this is the link to an English translation of the text. The decisions the translator made are sometimes debatable, but nevertheless it gives an impression.
