Our old friend Amshinover has many gifts. Chief among them is the ability to feret out odd and interesting Google links. For a time, every comment he left here using haloscan had a different homepage, each stranger than the one the came before it.

Yesterday, having used his powers for something other than evil, he sent me this: of a recording discovered last October of prisoners freed from Bergen-Belsen singing Hatikva for reporters.

BBC Recording:
Yediot article:

It should make your hair stand on end.

Fun fact to know and tell: The marvelously accented BBC reporter (found, I presume, in central casting) later became a member of Parliment and a cabinet minister. He lost his seat (in 1964) when an opponent played the race card.
