Down with the Police! / Daloy Politzei! – Jewish Yiddish Resistance Print


SKU: 62B9FCBDA9FF7 Categories: ,


Did you know there’s a Yiddish revolutionary song called “Daloy Politzei” (Down with the Police)? It was sung during the Russian Revolution when the Tsar was overthrown.

This original illustration was inspired by Yiddish Socialist imagery, and imitates early 20th century Yiddish sheet music motifs. A klezmer fiddler is featured, with lyrics from the song next to him. Below that is “Hey, Hey, Daloy Politzei!” in read, and below THAT are the police. The black banner says “Down with the Ruling Class.” The red one at the top says “Yiddish Revolutionary Music.”

Lyrics translation:
“Brothers, enough of your drudgery, enough of borrowing, we’re going on strike. Brothers, let us free ourselves. Brothers and sisters, let us join hands, let’s break down the Russian King’s walls.”
