In the GDR there was no connection to the world centers of Yiddish culture. Israel was seen as an aggressor and song collections, for example from New York, were exchanged among friends but could not be found in any libraries. There were a few recordings by the Leipziger Synagogue choir, mainly religious songs, symphonically arranged. And the well known singer Lin Jaldati: she had survived Auschwitz. Occasionally, official politics made use of her good name. In 1966, she was allowed to release her interpretations of Yiddish resistance and folk songs on one side of a record, and about 20 years later an entire record was released. …

From an article about Lin Jaldati’s daughter, the singer Jalda Rebling:
I first met her in the spring of 1984, at the first concert in “Berlin – Hauptstadt der DDR” of the Juedischer Musiktheaterverein Berlin which I had founded in West Berlin the previous October. She and her family were already quite famous, at least in Germany: Her mother, Lin Jaldati, was the last person to see Anne Frank alive, in Bergen-Belsen, and had been one of only five in a large family to have survived deportation from Westerbork to Auschwitz. Jalda’s father, the pianist and musicologist Eberhard Rebling, a non-Jew, had met her mother while working for Republican Spain, joined the Communist Party with her, worked for the underground Resistance during World War II, and later became Director of the Hanns Eisler Music Conservatory in East Berlin. Now retired at 84, he still occasionally plays, as in the forthcoming memorial concert in honor of Lin, who died in 1988.
Beginning in the 1970s, Lin had a career as a singer of Yiddish songs. Jalda, a trained actress, first sang with her in 1979. Eberhard accompanied them at the piano, along with Jalda’s older sister Katinka, a violinist, born in 1941. Their performances were classic, in both senses of the term, characterized by an enormous respect for the poetry, drama, melody, harmony, rhythm, laughter and tears inherent in the genre. They made LPs, and performed – in Israel in 1983, and at the Village Gate and Hebrew Union College in New York (as well as Amherst and Hartford) in 1986. But they always returned to Berlin, Hauptstadt der DDR.
