Leonard Cohen said he was moved to write this when he learned of the orchestra in Auschwitz.
Reblogged this on Teacher as Transformer and commented:
This is my favourite Leonard Cohen song. I was not aware of the story behind it and the Auschwitz orchestra. That speaks to a deep sadness and a celebration of living while we can. It reminds me of Viktor Frankl’s work about the meaning of life.
