about

From the producers of the Grammy-nominated Yiddish Glory, comes "I Am A Typhus Louse." During WWII, typhus became rampant as Jews and other prisoners were victims of forced starvation. Typhus, which is spread by lice, killed hundreds of thousands. The song was written in 1942 in a ghetto in Transnistria. For residents there, it was especially terrifying, as the Nazis often executed those with typhus. The song is actually a comedic one, written from the perspective of an anti-fascist louse.
