Saved: A trove of Jewish music that defied Nazis 

A rich trove of music created by Jewish artists under the Nazis is to be revealed in a new radio series. 

Presented by Jewish historian Shirli Gilbert of University College London (UCL), Music That Survived The Nazis is inspired by a recently digitised cache of songs recorded by two Jewish labels from Berlin in the Thirties, Semer and Lukraphon.

Both operated legally, but became subject to growing restrictions.

Semer and its founder, Hirsch Lewin, were targeted on Kristallnacht. Moritz Lewin, founder of Lukraphon, fled Germany in 1937.

The recordings were uncovered and restored by expert Rainer Erich Lotz.
