“Two days ago sebastian selke, member of the wonderful CEEYS, visited me in my kitchen and we recorded cello for a few tracks for my upcoming album coming in autumn/winter on Moderna Records. this session was extremely nice. everything went so smoothly well, it was a bit scary . you can see us chatting about recording in ableton in the picture taken by the lovely jacqueline halle.
after the sessions we had some quality time with pizza and the north sea. i am so thankful for this and very excited about the outcome. stay tuned for more information on the process of the album production.
‘Treblinka, Poland 2 August 1943′ is a song by The eye of time from the Denovali Records released album ‘Acoustic’.
Reworked and performed by CEEYS.
Recorded and mixed by Francesco and Antonio at Vox-Ton Studio Berlin.
“On August 2, 1943, the Committee launched their revolt. The prisoners seized weapons from the SS storeroom, attacked the German and Ukrainian guards, and set some of the buildings ablaze. Unconcerned with their own safety, the resistance leaders fought bravely to aid the escape of the inmates. Under gunfire from the watchtowers, many prisoners broke through the camp’s barbed-wire fences.
Of an estimated 300 inmates who escaped from Treblinka that day, about 100 survived the massive SS manhunt. Most of the Committee’s members, including Galewski, Bloch, and Kurland, perished during the uprising. Jankiel Wiernik escaped his captors and found shelter with a righteous Pole. The following year, with the assistance of Jewish underground leaders in Warsaw, he secretly published his memoirs of Treblinka and of the bold camp uprising, which were then smuggled to England and the United States. Wiernik died in Israel in 1972.”
