Abstract and Keywords

This article surveys the repertoire of Holocaust-related music — a category encompassing commemorative music, musical settings of relevant texts, and works dramatizing events in Holocaust history — in classical and popular genres, and places these works in the context of stylistic trends and cultural-political developments. It also identifies the repertoire's most frequently employed subjects and texts — the Warsaw ghetto, Auschwitz, Anne Frank (1929–1945), children's poetry from Theresienstadt — and discusses Holocaust representation in folk song, topical song, rock and roll, jazz, and rap.

Keywords: music, Warsaw ghetto, Anne Frank, poetry, Holocaust representation, topical song, rap
